Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar. The Month of Ramadan is also when the Holy Quran was sent down from heaven, a guidance unto men, a declaration of direction, and a means of Salvation. It is during this month that Muslims fast. It is called the Fast of Ramadan and lasts the entire month. Ramadan is a time when Muslims concentrate on their faith and spend less time on the concerns of their everyday lives. It is a time of worship and contemplation
During the Fast of Ramadan strict restraints are placed on the daily lives of Muslims. They are not allowed to eat or drink during the daylight hours. At the end of the day the fast is broken with prayer and a meal called the iftar. In the evening following the iftar it is customary for Muslims to go out visiting family and friends. The fast resumed the next morning. One may eat and drink at any time during the night until dawn rises.
Ramadan is a month of purification. In Ramadan, the last 10 days of Ramadan are special. The Quran revealed to the prophet Mohammed -Peace be upon him- during night of Power in Ramadan. Ramadan is a month of forgiving and worship, where every Muslim gets closer to god. Ramadan is a way to develop more self-control, and it is a time of charity and thanksgiving with friends and families.
The month of Ramadan is one of the best months of the year where all Muslims wait impatiently for its great rewards. Despite the hard work done during Ramadan, its approach brings joy to all Muslims. Fasting is a pious practice in Islam that fosters a sense of spirituality in Muslims. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, mandatory acts that form the foundation of Muslim life. Fasting reminds Muslims of the suffering poor; also, it helps Muslims gain self-control and cleanses the body and mind.
According to Islamic beliefs, the devils are chained at the start of this month, the doors of heaven are opened, and doors of hell are closed.
Throughout Ramadan all Muslims are strictly obligated to attend Mosque and have a nightly prayer, called Taraweeh. Along with praying, Muslims keen on significant days in the month; in the evening of the 27th day of the month, Muslims salute the Laylat-al-Qadr (the Night of Power) by praying and reading Quran.

Talhah Said :Isaw in adream that Isaw at the gate of paradise and Isaw them(those two men) some one came out of paradse and admitted the one Who had died last, Then he came out and admitted the one Who had been martyred. Then he came back to meand said:Go back for your time has not yet come
