It was in the holy month of Ramadan on the glorious night of Laylat al-Qadr that the holy Quran was first revealed to mankind. According to scriptures, throughout this month, the devils are locked up in chains in hell and nobody can come in way of your true prayers and the almighty. Ramadan is a time of spiritual reflection and increased devotion and worship.

Five daily prayers are observed every day from dawn to night. They are called Fajr (dawn), Dhuhr (noon), Asr (afternoon), Maghrib (evening), and Isha (night). Zakat or charity is obligatory in islam and is specially given during Ramadan. It is a fixed percentage of the person's savings that is required to be given to the poor. Sadaqah is voluntary charity in giving above and beyond what is required from the obligation of zakat.



During the month of Ramadan, Muslims let go of the worldly pleasures and fast with their family and friends. Fasting is obligatory for adult Muslims, except those who are chronically ill, pregnant, breastfeeding, menstruating or diabetic. Muslims refrain themselves from consuming food, liquid, smoking and intimacy with their spouses. They also do not indulge in any kind of false speech, insulting, cursing, lying, and fighting, that may negate the reward of fasting.
