Mehdi Dehghani Firoozabadi and Mohammad Ali Sheikhi*

ABSTRACT

One of the 5 fundamental rituals of Islam, the religion professed by over one billion people, is Fasting during the month of Ramadan. The time of observance differs each year because it is a lunar calendar. Fasting is from dawn to sunset, a period that varies with the geographical site and the season. In summer months and northern latitudes, the fast can last up to 18 hours or more. Muslims observing the fast must not only abstain from eating and drinking, but also from taking oral medications as well as intravenous fluids and nutrients. Fasting is not obligatory for children, menstruating women, sick, and traveling people. During the Ramadan fast, Muslims eat 2 meals, one before sunrise and the other shortly after sunset.
