Fasting in Ramadan involves abstaining from eating, drinking, smoking, and sexual relations from dawn to sunset.
This year, Ramadan commenced on April 3 and will end in a month’s time. Ramadan takes place during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.
Muslims believe the Koran was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad during this month.
