First and foremost, I would like to wish everyone Ramadan Mubarak (Blessed Ramadan). My initial feelings about Ramadan were somewhat negative. The thought of no food and no water for 16 hours wasn’t pleasant especially with the record temperatures set this summer.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic Calendar. It is considered the holiest month as it was during Ramadan in which the Holy Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon him). During Ramadan, Muslims observe Sawm (Fast) from dawn to dusk.
