Ramadan is the 9th month in Hijri Calendar. The length of the Month varies between 29 and 30 days depending on the sighting of the Shawwal Moon which leads to the much-awaited Islamic festival of Eid ul Fitr on the 1st of Shawwal.
Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam and during this holy month, Al-Quran was first revealed to the Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.) from Allah. The word ‘Ramadan’ comes from the Arabic world ‘Ramad / Ramida’ which means scorching heat or drought. The word Ramadan means forbidden from eating and/or drinking anything from dawn till dusk.
