The Muslims observe a fast for a month during Ramjan. This fast is called Roja.

Roja starts after partaking some food, known as sehari, about two hours before sunrise and it is terminated by eating light food and sweets, known as Abatarik. The Muslims also are required to make donations as per their capacity in this month of sacrifice and dedication.
