Traditionally, countries announce if their moon-sighting council spots the Ramada crescent in the evening before fasting begins.
Designated religious authorities in the United Kingdom (UK), Great Britain, Germany, France, Belgium and other parts of Europe are keeping a vigil on the crescent moon, which would mark the beginning of the month of Ramadan ul-kareem (Ramzan) 2018. Those observing refrain from food or drink from sun-up to sundown, with exceptions for age or health conditions, and break the day's fast with the iftar meal. If moon sighted, Shaban will end and Ramadan will begin from tomorrow, May 17. There are a total of around 470 hours of actual fasting (almost 20 full days) in daylight hours during Ramadan 2018.
Charity is highly encouraged during Ramadan because, Islamic clerics say, it earns Divine in many folds.
"The council hereby enjoins Muslims all over the country to be on the lookout for the announcement of His Eminence, the President-General of NSCIA, on the commencement of the 1439 AH Ramadanfast", Shehu said.
Saudi Arabia said that the Ramadanfasting will begin on Thursday across the globe, the official Saudi news agency SPA reported on Tuesday.
Fasting is the religious duty of all Muslims and it means not letting anything pass or even touch the lips.
This year, Ramadanfalls on long summer days for Muslims in the Northern Hemisphere. There are exceptions to fasting for children, the elderly, the sick, women who are pregnant, nursing or menstruating, and people travelling. "Our Constitution ensures Muslims can observe Ramadan in accordance with the dictates of conscience and unimpeded by government", Trump said in a statement. Before the daily fast spanning the entire month, Muslims have a pre-dawn meal called suhoor and also come together at dusk to break the fast with the meal called iftaar.
According to Islamic tenets, the first verses of the Quran, the central religious text of the religion, were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad during the month of Ramadan.
7 The fast ends with the festival of Eid al-Fitr, which is celebrated with gifts to charity and to one another, visits and parties. The prayer consists of a sermon followed by the short congregational prayer.
As an adult, he doesn't miss an opportunity to share his faith with others, and Ramadan is an important period of reflection and growth each year.
It's that time of year again!
