  • Between sunset and the last light of the day
  • Between darkness and dawn

    Ramadan
  • Sawm helps Muslims develop self-control, gain a
    better understanding of God's gifts and greater
    compassion towards the deprived.
  • Ramadan is the holiest day for Islam. It marks

  • It reminds them that everything they have really
    belongs to God.

    physically/financially able Muslims should make
    at least once in their life

Muslim Sects
  • Sunni-the majority
  • Shia-the minority
  • The split rose from an early dispute over who
    should be the leader of Islam after the death of
    Muhammad.
  • The Sunnis argued that the successor should be
    appointed by election and consensus, as tradition
    dictated. (Sunni comes from the Arabic word Sunna
    , meaning tradition.)
  • The Shia believed that Muhammad's successors
    should come from his family, starting with Ali,
    his son-in-law. These, the partisans of Ali, were
    named from the word Shia , meaning partisan in
    Arabic.
