Fasting is the Fourth Pillar of Islam, and Ramadan is the most sacred fast of the year. This lyrical program, beautifully filmed in Java and Sumatra, gently unfolds to tell the story of this monthlong Muslim fast through the eyes of a young couple. From the ritual purification that precedes the observance to the festival of Id-al-Fitr that ends it, Ramadan is described in detail. Information on sahur, chanting the Koran, the traditional return to one's family, and the Nights of Power are interwoven with devotees' reflections on their feelings of unity, rejoicing, and reverence for God. (53 minutes)

Only available in the US.
