Ramadan is a the ninth month , which is the holiest month and on that month is to remember that you are blessed and to show how much you have and how well of a life you have. Ramadan is when the rich and the poor feel equal. Ramadan night is when the Koran is when the Koran was sent down. Muslims go to the annual hajj to see a very special building called the Kaaba.
