Would you please tell me more about Ramadan and why you, Muslims, fast in the first place?
Salam (peace) dear Mark,
Thank you for your question.
Answering your question, we would like to quote the following:
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, throughout which Muslims around the world spend the daylight hours (from dawn to sunset) in complete fast.
