Ramadan is celebrated during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five Pillars of Islam. The fast is observed each day from sunrise to sunset. Muslims rise before sunrise to have a pre-fast meal which is called suhoor. They fast during the day. After sunset, they break their fast with the iftar meal. The month of Ramadan ends with a 3-day festival known as "Eid ul-Fitr," which literally means “to break the fast." Eid ul-Fitr is a time for rejoicing and families celebrate with elaborate feasts and dress in their finest clothes.
