Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and in 2016, it begins in the evening of June 5 and ends in the evening of July 5.
This is the month in which the Quran was revealed, when Archangel Gabriel (Jibreel in Arab) appeared to the Prophet Muhammad and began revealing the verses of the Quran and continued to do so for 23 years.
During this period of time, fasting is very important, and constitutes one of the five pillars of Islam (which include declaring there is no god except God, praying five times a day, giving to the poor and needy, and pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in a lifetime).
Fasting in Ramadan is not only abstaining from food but also from evil actions, thoughts and words.
Ramadan is also a time for spiritual reflection and devoting themselves to worship and pray to Allah.
