Islam is the largest and fastest growing faith in the world. The word “Islam” is an Arabic word that means “peace, purity, submission and obedience to the will of Allah.” The word Islam comes from the Arabic root word sa-la-ma, which means peace.
Ramadan is the ninth month in the Muslim lunar calendar. Muslims observe this sacred month of Ramadan to mark when Allah sent an Angel Jibrāīl to Prophet Muhammad with the first revelation of the Quran. This revelation is known as the “night of power” or ‘Laylat al-Qadar’ in Arabic.
