The significance

As per Islamic beliefs and traditions, the holy book of Quran was revealed to prophet Muhammad during Ramadan. Muslims also believe that during this time, the gates of hell close and those of heaven open. Which is why the community focuses all its attention on God, doing good deeds like feeding and giving alms to the poor and the less privileged. During this month, they also spend quality time with family and friends. This year, however, owing to the ongoing health crisis around the world, certain restrictions will be in place.

Fasting rules

During Ramadan, Muslims fast every day from dawn to dusk. This fast is known as ‘roza‘. ‘Sehri‘, a pre-fast meal is eaten before sunrise, and the fast breaks at sunset with a post-fast meal called ‘iftar‘. The purpose of fasting is to have a sense of discipline and control, and also spiritual and religious consciousness. It is prescribed for believers in the Quran.
