July 26 : 06 days to Ramadan*
Did you know that the Muslim faith began in what is today Saudi Arabia in 570 CE?

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!*
