-a month of obligatory daily fasting in Islam is the ninth month in the Islamic lunar calendar. Daily fasts begin at dawn and end with sunset. Special nightly prayers called, Taraweeh prayers are held. The entire Quran is recited in these prayers in Mosques all around the world. This month provides an opportunity for Muslims to get closer to God. This is a month when a Muslim should try to:
*See not what displeases Allah(GOD)
*Speak no evil
*Hear no evil
*Do no evil
*Look to Allah(GOD) with fear and hope
Ramadan ends with a day long celebration known as Eidul-Fitr.
