Observed as a time of fasting and austerity, Muslims refrain from smoking, sexual relations, and various other desires and emotions during this period or indulging in anything which is not pious or ill natured. The fasting is meant to learn patience, modesty and spirituality. They fast for sake of God. They also ask blessings from God for any sin they intentionally or unintentionally have committed, they prey for direction and self-purification. Besides fasting, Muslims also pray more than normal and if they make a habit of it, they may continue with prayers once the Ramadan month is over.
