Ramadan is a month that is observed by 1.8 billion Muslims all over the world. During the month of Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink from dawn until sunset. This is called fasting. Fasting in Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars Of Islam. During Ramadan, Muslims fast to get closer to God, be self-disciplined, control themselves, and show their gratitude for God’s blessings.
