Ramadan: A Month of Sharing
Building Bridges of Mutual Understanding
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar during which Muslims abstain from food, drink, and other worldly pleasures from dawn to dusk. Fasting is one of the five basic pillars of Islam, and it serves as both a spiritual and physical cleansing of the mind and body. Ramadan is a special time for Muslims everywhere; a time for reflection and greater spirituality; a time for sacrifice and generosity; and a time for devotion and self-control.
During this month, Muslims focus on improving themselves as human beings, to be a better father, mother, child and friend. And they focus on the less fortunate in society by giving in charity, and helping those in need in any way possible.
