Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. In this month the holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammed , the last messenger of God. Fasting is done in this month, which is one of the five pillars of Islam. While fasting from dawn untill sunset, Muslims refrain from consuming food and drink. Muslims also are instructed to refrain from sinful behavior that may negate the reward of fasting, such as false speech, insulting, backbiting, cursing, lying, fighting etc. The month lasts 29-30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon. After this, the morning prayer of Eid is offered in community centers and mosques all over the world. This is the day when all of us get together and celebrate Eid.
On the Eve of Eid, L.D.C.S was beautifully decorated and all the students were in colour dress.
