Ramadan or Ramzan or Ramazan or Ramzaan, is the most sacred month in Islam.

It falls on the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.

During this time, Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, smoking, and doing anything that is harmful from dawn until sunset.

They fast during this time and pray for peace and guidance, engage in charity work, and participate in humanitarian activities.

The fast is broken at sunset with a meal called Iftar.

If the new moon is visible, fasting can be started from 23 March. If it's not visible then the first day of fasting will be on March 24

During Ramadan, people follow Islam fast to purify their souls and increase their devotion to Allah.

 Many mosques offer additional services during Ramadan, including special nightly prayers called Taraweeh prayers, which are longer than the usual daily prayers.
