Ramzan, considered the most pious month by Muslims across the world, will begin in India on Wednesday. The month-long festival, also widely known as Ramadan, is celebrated every ninth month of the Islamic calendar and it begins once the crescent moon is sighted.

In Ramadan, Muslims observe a fast, also known as Roza. They do not eat anything from the time the sun rises to when it sets and also engage in humanitarian activities. Before sunrise everyday, they wake up to have their first meal called 'sehri' and they break their fast after the call for prayer in the evening with the meal called 'iftaar'.

Fasting is mandatory for all adult Muslims, unless they are sick, travelling, are having their menstrual cycle, are pregnant, diabetic, or elderly.
