Ramadan Begins Around the World
Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, has begun, and devout Muslims across the world will observe the month by fasting during the daytime.
The sacred nature of Ramadan is rooted in Muslim belief that Muhammad’s first revelation came during this period. Muslims adhering to the fasting ritual will give up food and drink from dawn until sunset until the month ends on August 7.
