Why Ramadan Month Is Celebrated?

Ramadan coincides with the date on which the Prophet Muhammad received the first revelation of the Koran, the holy book of Muslims which, among many other things, sets the boundaries in the relations between individuals and between the individual and the community.

During Ramadan, Muslims must fulfill the fast or 'sawn', one of the five pillars of Islam, considered as a method of self-purification by which they learn to have strength and patience and, therefore, to know each other, themselves.

In this way, this sacred month has, besides a religious function, a sanitary (purifies the body), mental (strengthens the will) and moral (to make understand what they suffer the people deprived of food), according to explain from the Union of Islamic Communities.
