Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar. The month officially begins as soon as the new moon is sighted in the country/region. Because of this, no one can exactly predict when Ramadan starts, which fuels quite the conversations.

On Ramadan, Muslims restrain from eating and drinking from dusk till dawn. It is strongly advised to have Suhoor, the pre-dawn meal, in order to recharge for the day.
