Shortly after arriving in Dhaka, Bangladesh, the Muslim month of Holy Ramadan began. For this first month, a great deal of my experiences have been shaped by Ramadan, and therefore I have chosen to write about what I have learned about Ramadan as a way to share a glimpse of the importance it has in the country. I will give a very brief introduction to fasting, Ramadan and its religious significance, as well as the influence it has in Bangladesh in regards to migration, meals (iftar) and day to day schedules. I will also share my personal experience of Ramadan, as well as a brief discussion of Eif ul-Fitre.
