Ramadan is when the Quran was adopted by Prophet Mohammed as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. This major holiday falls on the ninth month of the lunar Islamic calendar. It's observed with prayers, Qur'an recitation, and fasting by Muslims.

National, political and religious variations highlight stark differences and multiple identities among Muslims. The Sunnis, who account for over 80% of Muslims, have over centuries fragmented into three clear strands - the Political, Missionary and Jihad movements who possess individual characteristics and vary in global view. It is only the Jihadists, however, that pursue and promote an armed Islamic struggle, which led by the mujahideen can occur in an internal, irredentist or global capacity.

America is a melting pot and as long as the laws are followed, all cultures, races and religions must be respected.
