Ramadan Mubarak to all of those observing!

Ramadan occurs in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is observed by Muslims worldwide commemorating the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad. Ramadan is a time for prayer, self-examination and fasting. Fasting happens during the daylight hours, only eating before sunrise or after sunset, in special situations related to age and health there are variations to fasting. Eid al/ul Fitr marks the end of Ramadan this year on April 21/22.
