July 26 : 06 days to Ramadan*

Did you know that the Muslim faith began in what is today Saudi Arabia in 570 CE?

That is when the faith’s prophet, Muhammad, received his first prophecy from G-d (known by Muslims as Allah) at the age of 40.

Observed by more than one billion Muslims around the world, the month of Ramadan is a time for spiritual purification achieved through fasting, self-sacrifice and prayers. We’ll be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Ramadan!*

*Please Note: According to Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) the first day of fasting in North America would be Monday, August 1, 2011. Elsewhere depends where you live.
