During the month of Ramadan Muslims fast from dawn until sunset - that means eating nothing while it is daylight.
Children, pregnant women, the sick, the elderly and travellers don't have to fast.
The month of Ramadan is a time for spiritual reflection, prayer, doing good deeds and spending time with family and friends.
At the end of the fast, special meals are served and families and friends get together to break the fast. Many Muslims also go to the mosque to pray.
