Ramadan is the ninth blessed month of the Islamic lunar calendar.
In the month of Ramadan, the Holy Quran was revealed which is considered as a guidance for humankind.
During the entire 29 days or 30 days, Muslims who are physically able, all over the world keep fast and abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs between Sunrise and Sunset. But, Ramadan is much more than just not eating and drinking.
We are called upon to use this month to assess our lives in light of Islamic direction. The tongue must be controlled from bad-mouthing and gossip. The ears must control from listening to idle talk. The hand must not touch or take anything that does not belong to it. The eyes must control themselves from looking at unlawful things. Thus, essentially to clean up our lives, our thoughts, and our feelings. However, a person should observe these things throughout the year and not only during the holy month of Ramadan. If he is not following, then Ramadan is the best month to start practicing and then continue throughout his life.
Eating something before the dawn, also known as Sehri is considered auspicious. Similarly, preparing food for Iftaar (to breakfast) is also considered auspisious. Muslims generally prepare many delicacies during the holy month of ramadaan. The fast is broken with dates and water followed by some fruits. In many Muslim kitchen, food is prepared and sent to Mosques just before Iftaar so that people who come to read namaz and break their fast in Mosque can have it.
