Ramadan Kareem

Ramadan Kareem

Ramadan was due to begin on Wednesday 16 May and it is due to finish on 14 June. At the end of Ramadan, Muslims celebrate Eid el-Fitr, which is one of the two major festivals of the Muslim calendar (the other is Eid el-Adha, which marks the end of the annual pilgrimage season and is about two months after Eid el-Fitr).

During Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. The meal which breaks their fast is known as 'Iftar'.
