In the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, Muslims across the world fast for the holy month of Ramadan. Although the observance of this month can be hectic and less productive for some, it undoubtedly boosts spirituality and reminds Muslims of some of the core values of Islam: honesty, charity and purification. The Daily News Egypt takes you through a journey to discover Ramadan’s rituals and spiritual aims.

The six white days of Shawal

Fasting during the “six white days of Shawal” is not obligatory unlike during Ramadan. Fasting can be observed on any six days in Shawal and the days do not have to be consecutive.
