Ramadan is an Islamic holy month where we Muslims fast, pray and do good deeds to our God. In that time, we don’t eat or drink anything from the start of the first call to prayer in dawn (fajr) until the fourth prayer in the sunset (Maghreb) for 30 days.
Unlike Christmas and other holidays, Ramadan usually starts 10 days earlier every year. For example, last year in 2022, it starts on April 1. But, this year 2023 it will start on March 22.
As Muslims, this is very important to us since we dedicate to Allah. In that month, this is where we start to cook many delicious foods for our families and loved ones when breaking our fast. These include Main dishes, desserts, and snacks, which are all halal food.
