This is the holiest month for the Islamic people. Each year, millions of Muslims across the world take part in a month long fasting, popularly known as roza. According to the traditions of Islam, roza is kept to develop self-restraint in oneself. A person who keeps roza starts his/her day with a lavish meal before dawn which is known as sehri or suhoor. After the sun rises, the Muslims keep the fast for the whole day. Later in the evening, they break their fast with a special meal called iftar.
