Muslims also believe that one of those odd nights of the last 10 days to be especially blessed.

Why Ramadan is good for both body and mind

A commitment to a religious practice, studies indicate, lead to psychological well-being and better mental health. Hundreds of studies report religiosity being associated with, for example, lower levels of depression, anxiety and substance misuse. Some follow up with people over decades. The message is clear: commitment to religion is associated with a reduced risk of psychological problems.
A few disorders do break this general rule, though. For example, anorexia and obsessive compulsive disorders can be associated with heightened religiosity. And there are cases where people have been adversely affected by distorted teachings. However, in general, religious commitment appears to have positive effects on the mind.

The best way to break a fast is to continue eating normally. If you eat an unusually large meal after your fast day, you may end up feeling tired and bloated. PHOTO | SHUTTERSTOCK
As Muslims change their lifestyle and habits during the fasting month of Ramadan, experts advise careful management of eating patterns to avoid fatigue.
Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar and it is when Muslims observe a fast from sunrise to sunset. One of the components of this fast is that food is only eaten after sunset (iftar) and before sunrise (suhoor or daku). These meals are eaten as a family or community. However, are the portions eaten healthy?

Amman's Ramadan drummer balances spirit and livelihood

Late at night in a low-income district of Amman, Zeid Abu Mushref walks with an assured step as he pounds his drum, masking his status as a novice musaharati.
“Hey, you who are asleep, recite a prayer to Allah,” he chants, his voice ringing out slowly between beats.
But the steps of the 19-year-old are swift, as is his drumming.
Mr Abu Mushref operates in Nuzha, a hilly district of the Jordanian capital that he needs to cover on foot before the crack of dawn. This is so people wake up in time to have suhoor before the day-long Ramadan fast.
