Muslims began observing Ramadan on May 26, a sacred month of fasting that will culminate on June 24, or on “Eid al-Fitr.” The month of Ramadan is when people belonging to the Islamic faith observe a fast everyday of the month from dawn to dusk, as they believe that through this spiritual discipline they will achieve a deep contemplation of their connection with Allah or God.
