Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, smoking, and having sex from dawn to dusk throughout Ramadan. The fast can be broken with only a little sip of water or a puff of smoke. Family and friends get together at night for a celebratory meal.

Additionally, they are admonished not to engage in gossip, argument, or swearing throughout the holy month.
