Ramadan Begins: A Time of Reflection, Fasting, and Celebration

As Ramadan, the Islamic Holy Month, commences this week, approximately 1.8 billion Muslims worldwide will partake in celebrations filled with fasting, prayer, and reflection. Ramadan is a traditional holy month in Islam, marked by abstaining from food and drink while the sun is up, as noted by the Islamic Networks Group. The month serves as a time for Muslims to draw closer to God, cultivate self-control, gratitude, and compassion, and engage in intense spiritual rejuvenation. With an expected growth in Ramadan observers to reach 3 billion by 2060, the significance of this month resonates globally. In the United States, Ramadan started on March 10, 2024, and will continue until April 9, culminating in Eid al-Fitr, a joyous celebration of community, faith, and togetherness.
