RAMADAN is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar which Muslims around the world observe before the holy festival of Eid is celebrated.
Mohammed Ismael, a religious teacher at the Pacific Islamic Centre, said the month of Ramadan was for the people to renew and re-evaluate their lives by making sacrifices.
"Muslims around the world fast and not even drink water.
"We also ensure to live a life guided by the Islamic teachings," Mr Ismael said.
He said during this month, Muslims were to make amends with family and friends they had wronged, and also do away with bad habits and refrained from touching their wives.
Not only is the month observed by praying and reading the Quran, Ramadan is also the total commitment and focus to God mentally, physically and spiritually.
