Fasting during Ramadan is one of the fundamentals of being a true Muslim and is a time for intense prayer and religious devotion, with Muslims encouraged to observe five daily prayers throughout the day other than reciting Quran.
It is also believed that on the 27th day of Ramadan, God revealed the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad more than 1,400 years ago.
