The best month in the lunar calender is Ramadan which has begun from August 1 in almost all countries of the world.

During this month all muslims fast from daybreak to dusk.However, it is not only fasting that is practiced but tolerance ,patience and kindness to all especially towards the needy and poor is of utmost importance for all muslims to remember as mentioned in the holy Quran.

It is a month of peace and a period when we are reminded how hungry men/women or children feel in adversity and poverty.

It is hoped there is true peace in the world at this time of the year and people remember the teachings from the Quran,Ameen.
