Ramadan (Month of Fasting)

Ramadan holds profound significance for Muslims worldwide as it is a month of fasting, self-reflection, spiritual growth, and heightened devotion. During this holy month, Muslims abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs from dawn until sunset, focusing instead on prayer, Quranic recitation, charitable acts, and fostering a deeper connection with Allah. It is a time for purification of the soul, increased empathy towards others, and strengthening of community bonds.


Ramadan serves as a reminder of the less fortunate and cultivates gratitude for blessings received. Ultimately, it is a period of self-discipline and renewal, offering believers an opportunity for spiritual rejuvenation and closeness to their faith.
