One of the purposes of the holy month of Ramadan is self-control.

The men involved in the violence were heard cursing each other outside one of the oldest mosques in the city.

The reason of the fight, which took place last week, is still unclear.  Al Araby news outlet, however, reported that the fight may have broken out due to an argument over ‘sitting positions before the food was served.”

Ramadan in Saudi Arabia started on May 6.

Ramadan is a time of fasting, reflection, self-control, and spirituality.

During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from all food and water between dawn and sunset. In addition to fasting, Ramadan is also an opportunity for Muslims to open their hearts and engage in spiritual reflection.
