The month of Ramadan

Ramadan: the month where Muslims fast for a month. They usually wake up at Suhoor (before Fajr) to eat something. They can’t eat after Fajr. They fast during the day, and open their fast at Magrib. If you drink or eat something on purpose, then you have broken your fast. If you eat or drink something accidentally without intention, you must spit out what is in your mouth, and your fast remains valid. Some people are allowed to not fast: sick people, pregnant women, old people, very young children, girls on menstruation. For the fasts that Muslims miss they have to repay it back during the year, before the next Ramadan. They are not allowed to fast on Eid. During Ramadan is it beneficial and good to read the Qu’ran, make lots of Dua’s, Dhikr and complete good deeds. It is also good to send your neighbours food during Ramadan. Eid is a celebration for Muslims, as they have completed the month of fasting, known as Ramadan. There are also Sunnah fasts to fast after Eid day.
Ramadan is also a good time to spend time with your family, and good to open your fast with your family together.

Their is also a Dua to read when opening/breaking fast:

Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu wa alayka tawakkaltu wa alaa riz-qi-ka af-tar-tu. Aa’meen. Aa’meen.

This translate to in English: “Oh Allah SWT I fasted for You and I believe in You and I put my Trust in You and I break my fast with Your sustenance.
