Ramadan 2020: Keeping the faith in times of adversity
The holy month of Ramadan is a special time for the nearly two billion people who profess the Muslim faith around the world. It's a spiritual time of fasting and worship but also of family and community celebration and charity.
In Ramadan, believers fast from dawn to dusk and then gather around a family or community meal each evening during what is Islam's holiest month, which begins in most countries on Friday 24 April, and ends with the feast of Eid al-Fitr a month later.
