  • Ramazan 2018: Holy month of fasting starts in Gulf and far East countries from May 17

"Thinking about Muslim students who chose to fast during the upcoming exam period as well as those who don't and may have to put up with a lot of grief for their decision", Twitter user Sarah Ager wrote. Before the crack of dawn, Muslims consume Sehri, a meal taken to start the day, and Iftar after the sunset to break the fast.

If the eclipse happens after the sun sets, it's not possible to see the crescent, but if it happens and ends before the sun sets, sighting the crescent will depend on its location in relevance to the moon-sighter. Each Islamic month is either twenty-nine or maximum thirty days. Traditionally, countries announce if their moon-sighting council spots the Ramadan crescent the evening before fasting begins.

In Nigeria, the Sultan of Sokoto, Saad Abubakar, has advised Muslims to look out for the crescent moon on Wednesday, an indication the fasting will also start on Thursday. Reports in Ghana indicate that the national chief Imam, Sheikh Usman Nuhu Sharubutu, has asked the faithful to commence fasting on Wednesday.

Ramadan is a special time for the Islamic world but what is the celebration and how long does it last? If the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia declares the beginning of Ramadan from today, most among the Muslims in Europe would begin fasting from tomorrow.

The Islamic holy month of Ramadan will begin Thursday in Ramadan, the land of the religion's two holiest sites, authorities said.

Ramadan is a 30 day period of fasting recognizing the completion of the holy book by the Prophet Muhammad.

The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) board of directors, staff and volunteers extend their greetings to all Muslims on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan. Many donate their annual charity, known as "zakat", during Ramadan.

All Muslims who have reached puberty and are in good health are required to fast.

The objective of the fast is to remind the suffering of the less fortunate and to bring the followers closer to God.
