Here are some of them:
- Muslim do not eat, starting from 10 minutes before their pre-dawn prayer (Subuh) up to their sunset prayer (Maghrib).
- After their last prayer of the day (around 1 hour after the sunset prayer), they will pray together for several rakaats (rakaat is a measure of a prayer, each consists of standing, bowing and prostrating and sitting). Some do it for 11 rakaat, others for 23 rakaat.
- They spend more time to read Al-Qur'an.
- During the day, husband and wife are not allowed to have intercourse.
- The pre-dawn meal is called sahur, and it is better for them to take it--although some think that they can still do their fasting without it--as the meal is blessed by Allah (God).
- When they break their fasting, normally they eat dates.
- They feel closer to Allah as this is the month where Allah rain on them bunches of love and mercy.
