Ramadan Mubarak

Ramadan is a holy month observed by Muslims. During this month, Muslims fast, meaning they do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset every day (not even water!). Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, which also includes declaration of faith, prayer 5 times a day, charity and pilgrimage to Mecca.

The end of Ramadan is marked by a celebration called Eid ul-Fitr (the Festival of Breaking the Fast), and is celebrated with communal prayers, feasts, visiting family & friends, exchanging gifts and giving of charity.

Ramadan began on 9/10 March 2024, and concludes around 10/11 April (with the possible variation of a few days).
