Holidays on the Net is delighted to invite you to join our celebration of the Islamic holiday of Ramadan. The ninth month of the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is a time for spiritual purification through fasting, prayer and self-sacrifice.
More than one billion Muslims around the world daily observe the fast of Ramadan from sunrise to sunset. Visit Holidays on the Net to learn more about fasting and other traditions of Ramadan, such as the Eid ul-Fitr feast, which marks the conclusion of this holy month.
You can also learn more about Muslim terminology, such as the difference between Muslim and Islam or Sunni and Shiite. And discover why the weather affects the start of Ramadan. Then come test your knowledge with our Did You Know ? trivia quiz, highlighting facts and figures about the Islamic faith.

According to Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) the first day of fasting for Ramadan began in North America on August 01, 2011. I am excited to share our Ramadan celebration with you at Holidays on the Net.
