It’s the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. During which, muslims are required to fast*. That’s, not to eat, drink, have sex from dawn till sunset. It also has some extra worshiping rituals comparing to other months.

Arabic/Islamic months are:

  1. Muharram
  2. Safar
  3. Rabi al-Awwal
  4. Rabi al-Thani
  5. Jumada al-Awwal
  6. Jumada al-Thani
  7. Rajab
  8. Shaban
  9. Ramadan
  10. Shawwal
  11. Dhu al-Qadah
  12. Dhu al-Hijjah

They are based on the lunar cycle of the moon. The start and end date of Ramadan depend on sighting of the crescent moon. This is why Ramadan comes at different date each year.
