Ramadan is a holy month that is celebrated by Muslims all over the world. Muslims place a high value on the holy month of Ramadan because this is when the Holy Quran was revealed. 
Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is celebrated by Muslims all over the world as a time of community, prayer, fasting (sawm), and reflection. Ramadan, Ramadhan, and Ramathan are other names for the month. Ramadan, one of Islam's Five Pillars, is observed annually to mark the anniversary of Muhammad's initial revelation. It lasts twenty-nine to thirty days from one crescent moon sighting to the next.
