Ramzan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is considered the holiest month for Muslims all over the world. It is a month of fasting, prayer, and spiritual reflection. During this month, Muslims observe a fast from dawn until sunset, and they break their fast at sunset with a meal called Iftar.
The month of Ramzan is divided into three parts, or Ashras, each lasting ten days. Each Ashra has its own significance and is associated with a specific dua (prayer) that Muslims recite during that period. These duas are a way of seeking blessings and forgiveness from Allah, and they are recited by Muslims all over the world during the holy month of Ramzan.
