Ramadan, is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community.
Ramadan commemorates the month God sent down the Quran for the guidance of humanity.
During this time, Muslims would study and read the Quran, the religious text of the Islamic faith, in its entirety.
It was the holiest month of the year in Islamic calendar. For Muslims, it was a time for spiritual reflection and growth, to help those in need, and to spend time with loved ones.
The season was also a time when Muslims around the world fast during daylight hours for the whole month of Ramadan.
A visit by the GNA to some Zongo Communities in the Municipality in the early hours on Monday, saw Muslims engaged in their morning prayers called ‘Fajr.’
