Ramadan is a time when Muslims from all over the world come together. Fasting during Ramadan is the fourth of the Five Pillars of Islam.
These pillars include declaring belief in the oneness of Allah and the acceptance of Muhammad (p.b.u.h) as Allah's prophet (Shahadah), performing ritual prayers in the proper way five times each day (Salat), paying an alms or charity (Zakat), fasting during the month of Ramadan (Sawm), and pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj).
Azerbaijan, a predominantly Muslim country, has been celebrating Ramadan officially since 1993, following the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The country has always been one of the historical and cultural centers of the Islamic world.
For many centuries, people in Azerbaijan have been committed to their religious, national and moral values. The freedom of conscience and freedom of religion are fully ensured in accordance with local legislation and international law.
