Ramadan is an Islamic holiday celebrated throughout the 9th month of the Islamic calendar. This year, that falls between April 2nd and May 1st. It generally lasts about 29-30 days, taking place from one sighting of the crescent moon to the next, and is a time of fasting, prayer, reflection, and community. The practice is a celebration of Muhammad’s first revelation, a visit from the angel Jibrīl who revealed to him the beginning of what would later become the Qur’an.
