Ramzan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Muslims observe fast during the Ramadan month to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Prophet Muhammad.  The annual observance is considered as one of the ‘Five Pillars’ of Islam. Fasting from sunrise to sunset is mandatory for all adult Muslims who are not acutely or chronically ill. The length of the dawn to sunset time varies in different parts of the world according to summer or winter solstices of the Sun.

Most Muslims fast for eleven to sixteen hours during Ramadan. The pre-dawn meal is called sehri. When they break the fast post-sunset, it is called iftar. Zakat (charity) is also obligatory during this holy month. Muslims also perform Tarawih prayers at night after the Isha prayer during the holy month of Ramadan.

During the entire month of Ramazan in 2020, congregational prayers did not take place at mosques in most of the countries across the world due to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic. Eid celebrations would also be hampered because of COVID-19. Eid al-Fitr prayers would also be offered at home.
