Ramadan 2018 date: Looking for Moon on 29th Shaban tonight

Doctors have urged Muslims to continue with eye drops during periods of fasting Doctors have urged Muslims to continue with eye drops during periods of fasting

The month ends, based on astronomical charts, on the evening of Thursday, June 14. If the new moon, Crescent, is sighted, the next day is counted as first day of the next month.

"The council enjoined Muslims all over the country to expect the announcement of His Eminence, the President-General of NSCIA, on the commencement of the 1439 AH Ramadan fast soon". "Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you many learn piety and righteousness".

Ramadan is also recognised as one of the Five Pillars of Islam, alongside faith, prayer, charity and making the pilgrimage to the Holy City of Mecca.

The Masjid Abubakr Al-Saddik Mosque also welcomes the curious during the holy month and any other time.

Here are six things you should know about it.

In a series of tweets, Cavusoglu said: "We aim to feed 100,000 of our brothers during Ramadan, by providing hot meals to 1,000 families daily through TIKA [Turkish International Cooperation and Coordination Agency]".

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar during which "Muslims abstain from food, drink, and other sensual pleasures from before dawn until sunset", according to a press release from the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

3 Some are exempt from the fast. Travelers, sick persons and menstruating women are permitted to skip fasting, provided that they fast later on for a period equivalent to the number of missed obligatory days. "If they can't afford to feed the poor and the needy, they can serve the poor and the needy as a compensation for not fasting". Islamic aid charities will often run appeals at this time of year. However, since one of the eight steps of ablution includes the rinsing of the mouth, and accidentally swallowing the water during this step would break your fast.

Hayat said while traditional iftar foods like roasted meats, curries, buttery rice, fried snacks, and sweet desserts can fill you up, they can leave you lethargic for the latter part of the day. Another meal called the "suhoor" takes place in the morning just before dawn, and then fasting resumes.

In conflict-affected areas like Palestine and Marawi City, the lone Islamic community in the Philippines, Ramadan fasting would be more hard for Muslim constituents to observe, but their sacrifices are bound to earn more Divine rewards, according to Islamic scholars.
