Ramadan falls on the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is a period of prayer, reflection, and fasting. It begins with the last new moon of the eighth month - Sha'aban - and ends with the arrival of the next new moon 29 or 30 days later. Among other things, the ritual of fasting involves abstaining from food and drink, between sunrise and sunset. To break this fast, there are two fundamental moments experienced and shared with great joy and gratitude: breakfast (Suhoor) and dinner (Iftar).
