In the Muslim calendar, Ramadan is the holiest month and members of the Islamic faith observe it by fasting. Muslims believe fasting during the holy month brings them closer to God.
The Islamic calendar is lunar so while Ramadan is always the ninth month the dates of Ramadan change every year. The end of Ramadan is celebrated with a festival called Eid al-Fitr, this year it’s celebrated on June 4 to June 5.
