Beginning around April 23, Muslims around the world, and here at MSU, will begin observing the holy month of Ramadan. Though non-Muslims know Ramadan mostly as a month when Muslims don’t eat or drink during the day, for adherents, its significance is much deeper.

Ramadan is a period of fasting and spiritual growth, and one of the five pillars, or duties, of Islam. During Ramadan, able-bodied Muslims are expected to abstain from eating, drinking and sexual relations from dawn to sunset every day of the month.
