A common expression to greet others when this month starts. It means “Ramadan, the Generous Month”. The generosity is by the rewards that Allah will grant who makes faithful and intense worship during Ramadan.

رَمَضَان مُبَارَك
Ramadan Mubarak
Another common expression for greeting. It means “Ramadan, the Blessed Month”. Allah distinguished this month with special worship that is the fasting and excess of prayers and reading the Quran.

صَوْم
Fasting (SAWM)
Muslims are obligated to fast every day from dawn to sunset during this month. Fasting requires the abstinence from food, drink and sexual activity.
To say “I am fasting today” in Arabic, you say:

Suhoor
Another meal traditionally eaten before dawn during Ramadan; the final meal before the day's fast begins.

تَرَاوِيح
Tarawih
It refers to extra prayers performed at night in the this month. They are not compulsory. However, many Muslims pray these prayers.

زَكَاة الْفِطْر
Zakat al-Fitr
It is a charity given to the poor at the end of the fasting in this month, just before the holiday “Eid Elfitr = عِيدُ الْفِطْر”

خَتْم الْقُرْآن
Completing the Qur'aan
It means finishing reading entire Qur'an. Muslims are encouraged to do that because the Prophet Muhammad used to do that every Ramadan.
