Muslims in Wellington are nearing the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Ramadan is a time of fasting from food, bad thoughts and bad habits.

In Wellington there are just under 3000 Muslims fasting from sunrise to sunset.

Rehanna Ali is a member of the Kilbirnie Mosque in Wellington. She says being Muslim in New Zealand allows her to reflect on her faith.
