Muslims across the world are set to start the Ramadhan month on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, after the sighting of the moon. The holy month will come to an end on April 21, 2023, after which Eid-ul-Fitr will be marked the following day.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is considered one of the holiest months in the Islamic faith. It is observed by Muslims worldwide as a period of fasting, prayer, and reflection. During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs from sunrise until sunset. The fast is broken each evening with a meal called Iftar. Ramadan is also a time for increased acts of charity, kindness, and spirituality, and Muslims are encouraged to give back to their communities and engage in introspection and self-improvement. The month of Ramadan culminates in Eid al-Fitr, a joyous celebration that marks the end of the fast and the beginning of a new lunar month.
The clerics have urged Muslims to take this period and nourish their faith in God. People drawn from other religions have further expressed support for their Muslim counterparts as they mark this extremely important period in their calendar.
