The majority of Muslim people are excited for the coming of this celebration because this is when they analyze their lives to improve mentally, biologically and spiritually. That is why that the fasting is quite important. In fact, the fasting activity for Muslims is quite representative because it is the only way to acquire the Taqwa Taqwa.

The Taqwa Taqwa is the maximum condition of Muslims where people can obtain the control, discipline, obedience and consciousness of their lives. Foreigners can find a lot of bakeries that offer a big variety of breads but specially the Ramazan Pidesi (Ramadan Bread in English language.).

Another interesting feature during this religious celebration is the drum. A guy is in charge to play the drum and make as much noise as he can. This tradition comes from the Ottoman Empire when people woke up every morning at the sound of the drum. The Ramadan in Istanbul is quite interesting and foreigners can feel a carnival atmosphere there.
