Mohammedans complete the recitation of the Holy Quran during the month. They meet at the mosques to complete it during the month at a special prayer also known as Tarawih.

Yet, Ramadan has been declared as a compulsory month to observe fasts for the Muslims, it has been exempted for the ones who are facing genuine obstacles in their way. Women on their menstruation cycle and pregnancy, children, people suffering from illness and travelers are un-entitled to the compulsion.

The Mohammedans who are unable to observe the fast are suggested to do the ‘aihtraam’ which means to resist eating or doing things which may arouse the ‘rozedaar’. Though one does not need to go out of their way to accommodate the rozedaars. As rozedaars pledge to accommodate and not to be accommodated with.

Zakat is one of the most important practices of Ramadan. It is a farz on Muslims which orders them to do charity based on the special provisions on the property they own. (Source: BBC)
