Ramadan Begins In Kashmir

A Kashmiri Muslim woman with her hands decorated with henna prays on the first day of holy month of Ramadan, while Kashmiri Muslims come out of the Mosque after offering prayers on July 12, 2013.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, during which Muslims believe the Qur’an was given to Prophet Muhammad.

Muslims across the globe abstain from eating, smoking, and sex from dawn to dusk during the month. Besides spending more time praying, donating alms is mandatory. Every Muslim has to give 2.5 percent of their wealth and assets to the poor and often give more.
