Islamic tradition is deep-rooted in culture for Maldivians and the Islamic month of fasting is characterized by added commitment to prayer and other acts of worship. Mosques are fuller and reminders of faith a sprayed or posted on walls of homes. During Ramadan, smoking and publicly consuming food or water during the day is heavily stigmatized and even punishable by law.
