The Holy month of Ramadan (also known as Ramadhan or Ramzan) begins on July 10 in 2013 and will continue for a month. The beginning of Ramadan is decided after sighting the new moon, which varies from country to country. Muslims around the world greet the holy month of Ramadan with utmost respect and happiness.
It is compulsory for Muslims to fast during this month to purify their minds. Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. It is a period of prayer, fasting, charity-giving and self-accountability for Muslims. People of Islamic faith are encouraged to read the entire Qur’an during Ramadan. Some Muslims recite the entire Qur’an by the end of Ramadan through special prayers known as Tarawih, held in mosques every night of the month.
Ramadan is also a month for acts of charity. Some Islamic centers and organizations actively take part in charity events and activities such as giving basic necessities, including food and clothing, to the homeless or donating school equipment to schools.
