Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, a religious annual observance. It is beleived that Muhammad (peace be upon him) received his first revelation during the month of Ramadan. It is one of the 5 pillars of  Islam. During the month of   Ramadan, muslims across the world fast from dusk till dawn unless they are ill, pregnant, diabetic, breastfeeding of traveling. This time spent fasting is meant to be used for praying, charity, spirituality and purifying your mind and body. The actual beginning of Ramadan beginning starts at a new moon or astronomical calculations. Due to this, the beginning of Ramadan differs each year.

Ramadan feels different depending on the weather. Whilst sunny, many people crave for water thus making it harder however, when its cold you don’t  want water or food as much thus making it easier. We finish the fast at the Maghrib prayer (dawn). It’s traditional to break the fast with three dates and water however people usually break it with a buffet style meal.
