About Islam
Holidays and Festivals

Muslims believe that their god is almighty, unique, the creator, has all power and is absolute just and their only purpose in life is to serve him. They also believe that he is the only one capable of granting life and knows everything. Muslims believe in Creation and the same God in Christianity, but they give him a new name: Allah. They reject the idea of Christ dieing on the cross for humanity's sins. They believe that their god created them from attributes. There are five pillars, the central duties of every Muslim, which are: The Declaration of Faith, prayer (Salah), fasting (Sawn), Welfare Tax (Zakat), and pilgrinage (Hajj).
The Star and Crescent
There are two major holidays and festivals for Muslims, Ramadan and Eid Al-Fitr.
During the Ramdan, Muslims do not eat, they spend their time reading the Qu'ran
The Ramadan lasts about 1 month
The Ramadan start date moves back about 11 days every year
Ramadan is a holiday that takes place on the ninth month of the Muslim calendar, which is 10-11 days earlier every year, because the Muslim calendar is 354-355 days long, and that bases the day of Ramadan. Ramadan is celebrated so that Muslims can observe their religion and it is the time when the Qur'an was first revealed to Muhammad. During Ramadan, Muslims fast, which means they refrain from eat, drink, smoke, engage in sexual affairs, and sometimes swearing is not permitted. Fasting lasts from sunrise to sunset every day during Ramadan. Muslims are also encouraged to recite the whole Qur'an in the month of Ramadan.
