What is Ramadan ?
Ramadan is considered as the holiest season in the Islamic year and commemorates the time when the Qu’ran (Islamic holy book) is said to have been revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. This occurred on Laylat Al-Qadr, one of the last 10 nights of the month.Over a billion Muslims around the world every year awaits for the holy month of Ramadan.
Ramadan ends when the first crescent of the new moon is sighted again, marking the new lunar month’s start. Eid-al-Fitr is the Islamic holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.

What's the spirit of Ramadan ?
A muslim should carry purity of both thoughts and actions specially during Ramadan . The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities, its purpose being to cleanse the inner soul and free it from harm.
People are encourged to give more charities to the poor in this Holy month and help the need. Also people tend to read the entire Qur'an during Ramadan.
Muslims tend to recite the entire Qur'an by the end of Ramadan through special prayers known as Tarawih, which are held in mosques every night of the month, during which a section of the Qur'an is recited.
