Fasting during Ramadan is one of Islam’s five pillars, according to the holy book Quran.
The crescent moon was not visible in Saudi Arabia on Sunday night, according to the moon sighting committee. As a result, the last and 30th day of Shaban 1442 Hijri will be Monday, April 12.
Ramadan, also known as Ramzan, is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, during which Muslims around the world fast from dawn to dusk. They eat before the sun rises and after the sunsets. Suhur refers to the meal eaten before sunrise, while Iftar refers to the meal eaten after sunset. It is believed that God revealed the verses of the Quran to Prophet Muhammad for the first time during this month on “Laylat al-Qadr” (The Night of Power), the holiest night of the year when Allah’s blessings are plentiful and sins are forgiven.
Ramadan makes us aware of the frailty of human life and our reliance on the Almighty for sustenance.
Fasting during Ramadan is one of Islam’s five foundations, according to the holy book Quran. A declaration of faith, everyday prayer, charity, and performing the Hajj pilgrimage in Mecca are the other foundations of Islam.
