Hi, David and Ahmed,

Hello, Ahmed Imam Attia—I recommend using "During" or "On" instead of "At" or "In." Is Ramadan observed on one day only, or does it last several days?

'Ramadan' is our holly month in which we fast. (https://www.collinsdictionary....nary/english/ramadan)

I agree with you that 'During' works well. 'In' also sounds natural to use. 'At' makes me feel that we are referring to a kind of festival called 'Ramadan'. I don't think 'on' is appropriate here.

Thank you, Ahmed, for clarifying for me what Ramadan is. I had pretended that Ramadan was like Christmas, which, as you probably know, is a single-day holiday. But Ramadan is clearly not like Christmas. I defer to your answer.
