Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar that follows the lunar cycle. Fasting is also one of the five pillars of Islam and the basic idea behind fasting is to practise self-restraint. During the holy month of Ramadan, apart from fasting, the Muslim community also does charity and engage in humanitarian activities.
In Ramadan, people all over the world perform Roza with their friends and family. The festive month continues for 29-30 days and ends with Eid-ul-Fitr. The month of Ramadan has a special significance in the religion as it is believed the Holy Quran was sent down to earth in the month and was revealed to Prophet Mohammad.
