      • Sawm
        • Fasting which takes place on the ninth month of the Islamic calandar
        • It takes place on the month in which the Qur'an was revealed and some may try to read the Qur'an during the month and avoid sin as the month is seen to be as holy

        • During this process if one does it with commitment without sin then they will come out form it sinless like a newborn baby
