Ramadan, also known as Ramzan, is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is considered to be the holiest and most sacred month for Muslims worldwide. During this month, Muslims fast from dawn until sunset, abstaining from food, drink, and other physical needs, as a means of purifying the soul, practising self-discipline, and increasing their awareness of Allah.

The month of Ramadan is also a time of increased spiritual devotion, charity, and community gatherings. Muslims are encouraged to read the Quran, perform additional prayers and good deeds, and seek forgiveness for their sins. At the end of Ramadan, Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr, a three-day festival of feasting, family, and friends.
Ramadan is an important time for Muslims to renew their commitment to Islam and strengthen their relationship with Allah. It is a time for reflection, self-improvement, and gratitude for the blessings in life.
The exact date of Eid al-Fitr is determined by the sighting of the new moon, which marks the end of the month of Ramadan. Islamic months follow a lunar calendar, which means that they are based on the cycles of the moon.
Traditionally, the sighting of the new moon is done by trained observers in different parts of the world, who look for the first crescent of the new moon after the 29th day of Ramadan. If the moon is sighted, the new month (Shawwal) begins the next day, which is then declared Eid al-Fitr.
In some cases, if the moon is not sighted due to weather conditions or other reasons, the month of Ramadan may be extended to 30 days and Eid al-Fitr would be celebrated the day after that. Nowadays, with the help of technology, many Islamic organizations and mosques also use astronomical calculations to predict the date of Eid al-Fitr.
However, the traditional method of moon sighting is still widely used and observed by many Muslims around the world.
