Extracts from this essay...

Introduction

Ramadan Ramadan is a time when most Muslims test their faith in Allah, and test their self constraint and look to the word of the Qur'an. Ramadan is the ninth month of the year. The date of Ramadan changes each year because the Islamic calendar runs on the lunar calendar, Ramadan comes 11 days earlier each year according to the western calendar.

Middle

Some people are exempt from Ramadan; as the ill, pregnant and elderly citizens should not take the risk as it is not safe. Young children under 8 normally do not fast either. Throughout Ramadan, Muslims do not worship (because the worship of the prophet Muhammad would be unacceptable because you can only worship one god, that is Allah)

Conclusion

which falls within the last 10 days of the month. I generally think it shows how they live on the word of Allah, and I think that it is amazing that they can test themselves to that extent, I personally believe that it must be a spiritual journey to reflect on your self and your mistakes, In the end I think that it shows you that deep inside you , you have that burning fire that will always be there even when you think you can't carry on.
