What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is a special festival for muslims. It involves fasting and praying to God.
Fasting is when you do not eat for up to 20 hours.Muslims wake up in the middle of the night to eat and pray. Then the fast starts at sunrise. Fasting carries on for one month.
Ramadan comes around in late August to early September. Ramadan finishes when the moon is full and Eid has started.
What do they eat?
Muslims eat special food such as Biriyani, which is rice with bits of chicken in it. You can have this with a special chutney.
They eat lamb chops with chappati or they can have curry with chappati. They also eat samosas, spring rolls and puff pastries with all sorts of vegetables in it.
To end the fast the muslims have a date to eat; Muslims call it kajay. Muslims drink falooda, lassi and sherbert which is like a milkshake. They also have a special sweet called matai.
Watching and waiting
By the 29th day of Ramadan, everyone is wondering when the new moon will appear in the sky.This will signal the complete end of fasting and the start of a very happy festival.In some years the moon does not appear until the 30th day, which means a whole extra day of fasting.

IT'S QUIZ TIME!
1.) Name one of the most common foods?
2.)Name one piece of clothing that Muslims wear?
3.) What is the holy book for Muslims?
4.) When do Muslim's celebrate Eid?
The word ''Eid'' has evolved to mean a festivity. The word ''fitr'' is the root of the word ''iftar'' (breaking the fast) and marks the end of the fasting month.
Muslims celebrate because God has allowed them to participate in and complete the month of fasting and spiritual reflection. Muslims celebrate the fact that God, in His infinite mercy and wisdom, may accept their deeds and reward them.
At Eid, the imam (the leader who reads the prayers) reads the Quran.
The Quran is the main book of Islam and Muslims respect it so much they have to wash their hands before holding it. This is called Wudhu. You also have to do Wudhu before you read the prayer for Eid. The Quran was revealed by the prophet Muhammad
