Ramadan, Arabic Ramaḍān, in Islam, the ninth month of the Muslim calendar and the holy month of fasting. It begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon.
Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar. It is considered the holiest month for Muslims and one in which most people in Morocco participate in at least some way. Observant Muslims fast from food, all liquids, smoking, any sexual interaction, and impure or bad thoughts from sunrise to sunset every day for the month. They also visit the mosque and perform additional prayers and religious tasks during this time.
At sunset, after the 4th call to prayer, an iftar (breakfast) occurs. During this time you will likely discover the streets of even the largest Moroccan cities are completely deserted as people are in their homes to eat.
