Saudi Arabia announces Thursday start for Ramadan

Muslims in Leeds to begin Ramadan fast Ramadan for the Shiite and Sunni Muslims

However, as of our interview on Global News at Noon on Monday, the exact date had not been finalized. Because of the lunar calendar, the start of Ramazan moves backwards by about eleven days each year. It starts at sunset on the last day of Ramazan and celebrates the completion of the holy month of fasting. Things like taking small breaks from revision or work and going on small walks, writing daily to-do lists or listing what you're finding hard and working on combatting these, and planning meals to make sure you're eating the rights things to get good energy levels can all have a bit impact.

In the program, Eissa repeatedly questioned the necessity of fasting in Ramadan, saying that "Fasting is considered a sovereign decision, Allah (God) commanded us, yet we are not informed on the wisdom behind fasting". Where the new moon (that of Ramadan) is sighted on the 29th of Sha'baan (May 15), Muslims are expected to commence fasting the next day.

Before the daily fast, Muslims have a pre-dawn meal called suhoor and also come together at dusk to break the fast with the meal called iftar.

"That really kind of shows you: if I'm able to abstain from food, I can work on myself to become a better person". This seems to be how Ramadan is often depicted in the West. Once you actually get into it, you do find a sense of spiritualism and the sense of community is really great.

"You feel more of a connection to the lord", said Bisharo Dahir, mosque member. This Ramadan comes amidst true humanitarian tragedies that those several Muslim countries with wars, divide and conflict violating the spirit of the message of peace, gatherers, unity, love and coexistence. "Breaking fast with your friends and family is a really special time".

S Africans, Tutu express solidarity with Palestinians
Simon Coveney summoned the country's Ambassador to Iveagh House earlier where he called for restraint in the days and hours ahead. This step by the Trump administration was controversial because it broke with decades of USA policy and infuriated Palestinians.

Pew Research Center found in 2017 Republicans and white evangelicals tend to have much more negative views toward Muslims than other segments of American society: 68 percent of Republicans polled by Pew said Islam is not part of mainstream American society, and 72 percent of white evangelicals said there is a natural conflict between Islam and democracy.

While Ramadan is a boon for retailers in the Middle East and South Asia, critics say the holy month is increasingly becoming commercialized. Your gaze must also fast by watching what you look at.

He said that desire to grow in his faith is a common tie to most people in Oklahoma. "So if you have a neighbour, go visit them and maybe they'll share some treats with you this month", Hasan laughs.

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.

He added, "We all speak English so we use English as a unifying language, and at the same time, we do all the activities to accommodate everybody, especially in Ramadan".
