Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and the month in which Muslims believe the Quran was revealed. Muslims believe that the Quran was sent down during this month, thus being prepared for gradual revelation by Jibraeel (Gabriel) to the Prophet Muhammad. The month is spent by Muslims fasting during the daylight hours from dawn to sunset. Fasting during the month of Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam.
