5 Ramadan and Eid al-Fitri Facts

4. What do people practice during Ramadan?

We know that Muslims fast during Ramadan, which is obligatory. Zakat which is another pillar of islam is also obligatory during Ramadan. Zakat is a form of alms-giving or technically a type of religious tax where the money collected is then given to those in need such as poor people, orphans and a few more.

Other non-obligatory practices includes Suhur which is the pre-fasting meal eaten before dawn, Iftar which is the meal to break the fast at dusk, nightly prayers that they call Tarawih, charity which I don’t need to explain and also reading the Quran.
