  • Ramadan 2018 India Date

The moon-sighting committee is still in meeting and an official announcement is being awaited by them.

They also advise cutting back on caffeinated drinks, drinking plenty of plain water and eating unrefined carbohydrates and proteins, during non-fasting hours, to maintain energy levels.

If the new moon is sighted today then the Holy month of fasting Ramdan will begin in India, Pakistan and Bangaldesh on Thursday May 17, 2018.

But how many hours of daytime fasting does it involve, taking up how many days? In Scotland, they claim, the moon would be visible only on May 17.

US President Donald Trump today greeted Muslims observing Ramadan and said the holy month is a time of self-reflection meant to deepen one's spiritual growth.

Muslims are instructed to seek the Night of Power during the last ten days of Ramadan, particularly on the odd-numbered nights.

Imam Imad Enchassi, founder, lead imam and president of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City (ISGOC), said some are exempt from the daily fast, including those who are ill, the elderly and young, travelers and those pregnant or breastfeeding.

Saudi Arabian moon observers said that there was no sight of the Ramadan crescent on Tuesday, meaning millions of Muslims around the world will begin the holy month on Thursday.

Muslims in Turkey will begin fasting on Wednesday.

The president noted that Ramadan was a period of fasting and spiritual reflection for Muslims, pointing out that many perform acts of charity, read the Quran, and recite prayers during the holy season.

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. Other than fasting they also engage in charitable activities.

The month of Ramadan is observed in order to commemorate when Allah gave the first chapters of the holy book Quran to the prophet Muhammad.

"Being a minority religion is always challenging, and it's rewarding at the same time", Enchassi said.

Muslims during Ramadan generally greet each other saying, "Ramadan mubarak!" and Sunni Muslims go to the mosque at night to offer prayers, the practice is known as "taraweeh".

Whiles prices of food are said to be soaring in parts of Nigeria due to the Ramadan, Somalia and Kenyan authorities are also feverishly undertaking measures to ensure that terrorist groups are not allowed to carry out attacks.
