Article 14: We have the right to practice our own religion.

Tim, the local imam, visited us today to talk about Ramadan. He explained that we are currently in the month of Ramadan – the ninth month of the Islamic calendar as it follows the moon rather than the sun so each year falls on a different date. He explained why Muslims fast during this period and the length of time they fast (from the break of dawn to sunset) as well as when they break their fast. Overall, Ramadan will last for 29-30 days depending on the moon’s cycle before the celebration of Eid.
