Muslims around the world celebrate the month of Ramadan to honor Allah. During every day in that month, Muslims do not eat food between sunrise and sunset. Then, each night at sunset, they say special prayers and eat a special meal. After almost four weeks of fasting this way, they have a great three-day festival called Eid al-Fitr to celebrate the challenges they met during Ramadan and the coming year.
