Ramadan Begins

Thursday, 23 April 2020

Ramadan is the Islamic holy month of fasting. It is the ninth month on the Islamic calendar, which is based on a lunar cycle.

Ramadan begins and ends with the official sighting of the new moon. During the month-long fast, able-bodied adults and older children fast during the daylight hours from dawn to dusk.

Muslims fasting during Ramadan break their fast each evening with prayer. They proceed to have festive nighttime meals that are often shared with friends and extended family. The end of Ramadan is marked by a big celebration called 'Eid-ul-Fitr', the Festival of the Breaking of the Fast.
