Ramadan is the most significant month of the year for many Muslims worldwide.

What makes Ramadan so special is that it is the month that the Holy Qur’an, or the Muslim Holy Book, was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad by the Angel Gabriel.

During this month, Muslims all over the world fast from dawn until dusk to achieve a higher level of God consciousness. Acts of charity, increased prayer and supplications, repentance, and forgiveness of others take place. Children and pregnant or nursing women are exempt from the mandatory fasting but are encouraged to participate in the previously stated acts.
