What is Ramazan?


Ramazan is held during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is a time for spiritual reflection, acts of charity and spending time with loved ones.

It is also a month when Muslims fast. This means no eating or drinking between sunrise and sunset, which is important during Ramazan as it allows Muslims to devote themselves further to their faith, ultimately becoming closer to Allah.

The reason why Muslims fast is because it is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, the other pillars being faith, prayer, charity and making the pilgrimage to Makkah – the Holy City.

Before sunrise, Muslims eat a meal (Sehar) and then another meal (Iftar) after sunset. The only people that do not have to fast during Ramazan are children, the elderly, pregnant women and those who are travelling or who are ill.

Ramazan falls at a different time each year because the Islamic calendar is based on lunar cycles, which means there isn’t a fixed date.

This year, Eid-ul Fitr is likely to be observed on June 15 (Friday) or June 16 (Saturday).
