    Ramadhan is the 9th month of the Islamic Lunar year.

    It's a holy month, during which Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. At the end of the month we have Eid ul Fitr, one of the two main Muslim holidays, where we celebrate one month of fasting.

    It is also the month in which the Qur'an was first revealed.

    Its a month of Muslim Lunar Calendar

    Significance:

    Its important because in this month, Muslims fast from down to dusk. The fast begins with a short meal just befor the time; although its not necessary but its recommended. Then, goes the day fasting. The meal in the end is just after the sunset. Its necessary to eat something at that time.

    Philosophy:

    Islam is a religion for mankind and is according to the needs of mankind. Fasting in Ramadan is there to make Muslim people understand that there are people in the world who dont have enough to eat. So, muslims should know how it feels to be hungry whole day long. This means they should the ones in need. There are several other moral and scientific benefits of fasting

    It is a name for a month in the muslim calendar..... during which believers fast from sun rise to sun set, praying more each day, giving charity, and stay away from lust. Also spend more time with family, and learn more about the religion... it is the time to give, and be sympathetic to the suffering of the less fortunate.... The best part about it is, when it is time to eat, every household usually fixes a great feast almost every night, and eats it, followed by prayer...... some more food is eaten late night before bed to keep the stomach throughout the next day. It is also believed that the last 10 days of the month the heavens are wide open for prayer, during which most muslims stay up the whole night reading the holy Quran and praying to God for whatever..

    ramadhan is a month where all the muslim have to fast for a month. not only fast from eating and drinking but we also must control our behaviour, emotion and lust. and it's not a holiday k..
