Ramadan mubarak! June 5 marks the beginning of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month that involves 30 days of fasting and religious observance. Not familiar with it? Get to know more about Ramadan below!

It’s officially time for Ramadan! The 30-day religious practice kicked off on June 5, with millions of people taking part in the fasting period. We figure those who don’t celebrate probably have several burning questions about Ramadan — so let help you get some answers!

Get Festive

1. What goes on during Ramadan, exactly?

Those who follow Islam vow to refrain from smoking, engaging in bad behavior (cursing, fighting, gossiping, etc.) and impure thoughts until the final day. This year, the last day is July 5.

2. What’s the significance of this religious practice?

Ramadan is representative of the month during which the Prophet Muhammad received the initial revelations that make up the Muslim holy book, the Quran.

3. Why do people have to fast for this?

The idea behind the fasting involved with Ramadan, as well as focusing on prayer and charity, is that it will purify the spirit, body, and bring the faithful closer to God. Additionally, fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam. Not everyone will fast, but most do!

4. Is it the same date every year?

Although Ramadan is representative of the 9th month on the Islamic calendar, it doesn’t start and end on the same dates every year. It begins with the sighting of the new moon, which means the start of Ramadan varies slightly around the world.

5. What happens when the fast comes to an end?

After 30 long days of not eating or drinking water, Ramadan closes out with Eid al-Fitr, a big feast dedicated to breaking the fast. It’s practically a holiday in itself, which three days of just special meals and prayers.

Will you be celebrating Ramadan, HollywoodLifers?
