Ramzan is the most important festival of the Muslims. The whole month of Ramzan is considered sacred. The beginning of the month of Ramzan is believed to open the gates of heaven and close the gates of hell.
Fasting is observed throughout the month of Ramzan from dawn to dusk. This fasting is a pious practice. People feel their closeness to God and they even renounce the other pleasures of the world. Prayers are offered before the sunrise at dawn and people refrain from even drinking water till sunset. After sunset they break their fast and eat food. This practice is continued throughout the month. There is a special requirement called Niyyah which means intention. This means that one should not fast by simply avoiding food but should wholeheartedly observe fasting to worship Allah.
There is a big celebration for three days which is called Eid al-Fitr is at the end of the Ramzan month. Eid al-Fitr is called the festival of breaking the fast. Gifts are exchanged between friends and relatives and people take their food with their near and dear ones.
