Ramadan

This is the 9th month of the Muslim calendar/year. During which there is strict fasting, which is observed from sunrise to sunset. The origin of this word is from the Arabic ramada (there’s a accent dot under the d) “be hot.”  The lunar reckoning of the Muslim calendar beings the fast 11 days days earlier each year.  Eventually causing Ramadan to occur in any season. Originally it was supposed to be in one of the hot months.
