Ramadan bazaar, Seberang Jaya, Penang

Ramadan is a Muslim religious observance that takes place during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, in which the Qur’an was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.

Ramadan is the Islamic month of fasting… Muslims would not eat or drink anything from true dawn until sunset [more on Wiki]

Ramadan is huge in Malaysia with Islam being the predominant religion; temporarily food markets (pasar ramadan) would be set up in various places during the month for the convenience of the Muslims to buy their food for breaking of fasts.

As for non-Muslim, it’s a month to sample a great varieties of dishes and cuisines from the Ramadan markets; it’s also quite a popular season for foreign travellers to visit Malaysia for the traditional food and cultural experience.

Muslims will celebrate Eid ul-Fitr (literally festival to break the fast) at the end of the fasting month. In Malaysia we call it Hari Raya Aidilfitri, which is the biggest holiday of the year (Oct 1 in 2008). Wishing all Muslims a happy festive season; and for all Malaysians… enjoy your holiday :)
