Year 3 Moon 6

Y3L6

I believe that the Holy Islamic month of Ramadan begins Day 2 (June 7th) with the appearance (or sighting in orthodox traditions) of the crescent moon. With my admittedly limited understanding of the practice of fasting, it is meant to remind us of our privilege, and to donate our excess to those who need more than we.

I imagine that the effectiveness of this practice varies from community to community, as with Lent, or other religious observances.
