Ramadan began on June 5, 2016 and continues to July 5, 2016. * The Islamic calendar is lunar and the days begin at sunset, so there may be one-day error depending on when the New Moon is first seen.

Ramadan is intended to teach Muslims about patience, spirituality, humility and submissiveness to God. Below are some stories to celebrate Ramadan.
