Ramadan begins May 26th

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar, the time of year when it is believed that the Holy Quran was received by the Prophet Muhammad. The month is marked by fasting during the daylight hours, and prayer and studying of the Quran. When the fast ends on the first day of the month of Shawwal, it is celebrated for three days in a joyous holiday called Id-al-Fitr, the Feast of Fast Breaking.  This year, Ramadan begins on the evening of May 26th and continues until June 25th.
