On Saturday, May 27, Ramadan obligatory fasting starts for Muslims. While fasting from dawn until sunset, Muslims refrain from consuming food, drinking liquids, smoking, and engaging in sexual relations.
Fasting begins at dawn and ends after sun sets. It is believed that complete refusal from human needs allows Muslim people to demonstrate the strength of their faith, Muslims are striving for spiritual self-perfecting, avoiding nasty thoughts and actions.
This month Muslim people are taking prayers more seriously. They are reading Quran and giving alms to poor.
Missing the fasting is only possible for good reason, otherwise it is considered a sin. Muslims are only eating in the morning at dawn and in the evening after sunset during Ramadan.
