Ramadan is the name of the ninth month in the Hijri calendar. The religious observances of Ramadan occur throughout the entire Islamic calendar month. The calendar month Ramadan, 2006 (1427 AH), according to Saudi Authorities began on September 23 and will end on October 23. Other nations started a day later..
The Qur'an started sent down to the earth during this month. The entire month is spent fasting from dawn to dusk. Fasting during this month is often thought to figuratively burn away all sins. Furthermore, the Prophet Muhammad told his followers that the gates of Heaven would be open all the month and the gates of Hell would be closed. The first day of the after Ramadan is spent in great celebrations and rejoicings and is observed as the 'Festival of Breaking Fast' or 'Eid ul-Fitr'..
