During Ramadan every Muslim is required to fast. Meaning not being able to eat or drink from dawn to dusk. You are only excused from fasting if you are traveling, sick, old, too young, or expecting a baby. Whenever you see a crescent moon in the sky it means that it is the beginning of a new month. However, if you see the crescent moon nine times it means the beginning of Ramadan the month of fasting and forgiveness. Muslims do Ramadan because it is one of the requirements of the religion. But, doing Ramadan helps you as well. Fasting helps you strengthen yourself mentally, it helps your discipline and it helps you become a better person! Ramadan is a really important part of life  because it helps you appreciate everything you have been blessed with and that is an amazing lesson to learn.
