Ramadan month is one of the holiest months in the Islamic calendar. Falls on the ninth month, the sighting of the crescent moon marks the beginning of Ramadan. During this month, Muslims wake up early to have their pre-dawn meal (Sahur) before the call for morning prayers (Solat Subuh). They will then fast for the rest of the day until they hear the call for the evening prayers (Solat Maghrib).
Muslims fast during this holy month and offer more prayers than usual. This is a time of self-evaluation and self-reflection. They seek for forgiveness and forgiving others, resist to temptations, show more concerns to their community, express their love and rejuvenate relationships with their family and friends. In order to do these, it requires high levels of patience, discipline, devotion and sacrifice. As this is a period to strengthen ties with their families and friends, Muslims usually break fast together with their loved ones.
