Ramadan Mubarak (Blessings of Ramadan) to our Muslim readers and friends!

During the month of Ramadan, the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. It was sent down from heaven as guidance for men and as a direction and a means to Salvation. 

Ramadan began this year on August 1st and will end on August 29th. It is observed through fasting, worship, reading of the Quran (the holy book), spiritual reflection, generosity to others, and strengthening of family and community. Every day from dawn to sundown during Ramadan, Muslims who are past the age of puberty abstain from food and liquids.

Ramadan is the most sacred of Muslim holidays.
