It was during the month of Ramadan that the Qur’an was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. To mark this, Muslims fast during daylight hours throughout the month, the ninth of the Islamic calendar, and treat it as a time of reflection and spiritual dedication. Once fasting is over, communities come together to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with feasting and festivities. Help students understand and embrace Ramadan’s values with these hand-picked resources.
