Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar—during which Muslims around the world observe a month-long period of abstaining from food and water from sunrise to sunset. While this can seem difficult, Ramadan is a month that Muslims look forward to all year long! It’s a time when Muslims are especially encouraged to be generous, and commit acts of service that put others first. The entire month is brimming with a strong sense of community and unity; is full of delicious food after the fast; and ends in a festive three-day holiday called Eid al-fitr.
