In this day and age we live in today we are faced and aware of many different religions and practices some of which are our own friends or the people sitting next to us! That is one of the beauties of modern-day society.


A very big religious month for followers of the religion Islam is Ramadan. Some of you may know that this is the month when Muslims fast during the day from sunrise to sunset for the whole month. But many of us do not know the actual reason why Muslims fast this Month.


Fasting is a very essential part of being a Muslim. It is part of the 5 principles of being a Muslim which is often referred to as the 5 pillars of Islam. And these 5 principles are something all Muslims should practice. It also means that it is mandatory for all Muslims to fast during the month of Ramadan (if they meet the health requirements). 


As humans, we are susceptible to sins and transgression of the boundaries established by Islam and fasting teaching us. how to control our desires and how to restrain from these worldly pleasures, 


Overall Ramadan is a holy month that is very virtuous and full of rewards and forgiveness for muslims.
