Sawm, fasting during the holy month of Ramadan, is the fourth pillar of Islam. Ordained in the Holy Qur’an, the fast is an act of deep personal worship in which Muslims seek a richer perception of God. In order to introduce and engage people in the meaning of the fasting ritual, The Ramadan Circle accommodates a significant odd number of users, allowing a Muslim family to invite guests to share Allah’s blessings.

The Ramadan Circle uses verbal messages to gather a family together during Iftar to break their fast after the Athan (call to prayer) has commenced, and once again at the end of the meal as a reminder of the intention of the next day’s fasting. This emphasizes the concept of brotherhood and fellowship embedded in the Islamic fasting tradition of the meal as a reminder of the intention of the next day’s fasting.
