The Holy Month in the Islamic Calendar, when Muslims fast (also known as sawm) from sunrise to sunset for approximately 30 days. Doing so is one of the five pillars of Islam. The dates change annually as they’re determined by the sighting of a new moon – for many Muslims. The start and end of Ramadan will be declared the day before. A lot of practices are involved in the month of Ramadan.
As sunset approaches after a whole day of fasting past sunrise , a lot of people will be driving to iftars or mosques to break their fast and say their prayers.
Charity is a very important part of Islam and is even more significant during Ramadan. However, you don’t have to be a Muslim to give during the Holy Month. There are plenty of charitable initiatives, Ramadan camps, iftar camps, care packages and more, all of which can be contributed to during the Holy Month.
This practice goes on for a whole month when the Muslims from all over the world celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr absorbing the joy of praying and fasting throughout the holy month of Ramadan.
Eid al-Fitr translates as the ‘festival of breaking the fast’ and happens immediately after Ramadan, with festivity, day-time feasts and family gatherings. Customarily, family and friends dress up in new Eid clothes and visit each other’s houses bearing gifts. Many families will also visit the poor and needy in their own communities to make sure they have enough food and water to celebrate themselves. Charity is known as zakat, one of the five pillars of Islam, and is particularly significant during Ramadan and Eid.
