Ramadan is an important festival on the Islamic calendar, which requires believers to fast for thirty days.
During the festival of Ramadan, in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, believers around the world will refrain from taking in food, drink and even smoking during the day.
It is believed that this is the month in which the Quran began to be revealed, and so is a very important time of year. Numerous religious observances take place and prayers, fasting and charity are held in high esteem.
