For many Muslims around the world, Ramadan is a time to look inward, to weigh the heart’s desires and separate out the things that really matter.
Muslims are encouraged to fast from dawn to dusk during this holy month. They joyously break the fast in the evening, snacking on a sweet date before sharing the iftar meal with family and friends.
