The Islamic holy month of Ramadan will begin on May 5 and end on June 4, 2019. Ramadan is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief.

If travelling during this period to a country with a Muslim community, take time to learn about Ramadan to ensure you respect religious and cultural sensitivities, rules, and customs.
