This year, the first full day of Ramadan fell on May 27. Muslims follow the tradition of abstaining from eating, drinking, smoking, having sex, and other physical needs each day, starting from before the break of dawn until sunset during the holy month.

Muhammad is believed to have preached a sermon on Ramadan in which he said, ‘Whoever performs an obligatory deed in (this month) shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time.’

A Taliban spokesman recently stated, ‘Our fight is Jihad and an obligatory worship. And every obligatory act of worship has 70 times more reward in Ramadan.’

Religion of Peace website in coordination with news reports, excludes the number of casualties directly linked to battles between U.S.-led coalition troops and jihadists groups, as well as Iranian- and Russian-backed troops loyal to dictator Bashar al-Assad.

If all of the deaths from the ongoing conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan had been included, the total number would be much higher.

The Religion of Peace website acknowledges their estimate is an under-count, so the number of Ramadan deaths and injuries is actually much higher.
