How Long The Ramadan Fast Lasts For Muslims Around The World

Ramadan (a lunar month) is a holy month, a time for introspection and spiritual renewal for Muslims around the world.

Muslims observing the fast rise before dawn for the Fajr prayer. After partaking in the Suhur meal, they won’t be able to eat or drink anything  or even smoke until  a while  after the sun has set (Maghrib prayer). When the time for the Maghrib prayer comes, Muslims can break the fast with a sweet, tasty date and a celebratory meal called an Iftar.
