Ramadan Observation & Celebration
April 16, 2021
Let’s observe Ramadan! For the hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world who observe Ramadan, this month is a time to focus on their faith and perform generous acts. Some Muslims use this time to raise money or donate to help others in need. Today we will learn about this significant tradition in the Muslim culture.
