Three Muslims break it down, from individual perspectives.

Ramadaan is the month the Quran (Muslim holy book) was revealed so fasting is like a month-long homage to the revelation. Fasting starts at sunrise and ends at sunset (we have special calendars ok!) No compulsory fasting for: kids under 12, pregnant, menstruating or breast-feeding women, anyone who is ill, old or travelling. Eating by accident – happens to the best, rinse your mouth and carry on. No clubs, gossiping, bad behaviour, or sex whilst fasting. We pray... a lot.
