Ramadan is a holy month of the Islamic lunar calendar when Muslims abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset. Fasting during Ramadan, which falls between May 5 and June 4 this year, is one of the “five pillars” of Islam and is performed to learn compassion, self-restraint and generosity. A meal called an Iftar breaks the fast each day.
