πŸŒ™ What is Ramadan? πŸŒ™

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. During this month, Muslims fast from dawn until sunset. 🍽️ The purpose of fasting is to grow spiritually, develop self-discipline, and empathize with those who are less fortunate. πŸ™

Muslims also engage in additional prayers and read the Quran more frequently during Ramadan. πŸ“– At the end of the month, they celebrate Eid al-Fitr, a joyous occasion filled with feasting, gifts, and spending time with loved ones. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ
