Ramadan is officially upon us and will be until Eid comes around next month on June 3rd. It's a month of spiritual and physical cleansing during which Muslims around the world abstain from eating, drinking, sex, smoking, cursing and anything else that could be considered harmful or toxic to the body and soul — at least during the hours of sunrise and sunset. 

And while it's a period of purity and cleansing, we don't think it says anywhere that we can't still celebrate and enjoy laughing at relatable memes, right? In honor of Ramadan, here are 15 memes about fasting, suhoor and masjid.

The best part is that then you get to go back to sleep. 

But Ramadan is also a time to cut your Muslim friends some slack because they're working so hard to purify themselves that they might come off as hangry or grumpy. Nothing to take personally. Also, if you want to wish someone a Happy Ramadan, try out a "Ramadan Mubarak" or "Ramadan Kareem," which literally means "Have a generous Ramadan."

It's kind of reminiscent of how we tell people who observe Yom Kippur to "have a meaningful fast." However, unlike Yom Kippur, Ramadan lasts a whole month. Also, it's not determined by calendar dates. Crazy, right? Instead, it begins in the ninth month of the lunar Islamic calendar, the morning after the crescent moon is visible to the naked eye.

Ramadan Kareem, you guys!
