It's estimated that one in five people in the UAE have diabetes

The Colombo Grand Mosque said that fasting month observed by Muslims in Sri Lanka, in view of Ramadan will commence from May 18.

Apart from being a traditional event, Commission on Elections chief of Judicial Records Division Dr. Saga Mabaning said that moon sighting is a significant event for Muslims nationwide as "it shows that they are one in conducting their religious rites just like the Christians who are united in performing their religious activities".

Eid-ul-Fitr marks the end of Ramzan. For those fasting in North America and Europe, Ramadan falls on especially long days this year, with Muslims in some cities not breaking their fast until after 8 p.m.

The monarch therefore, urged Muslims to rededicate themselves to the worship of God and pray for peace and progress of the country.

Mumbai: The Holy month of Ramzan according to the Islamic calendar will begin today as the moon was sighted on Wednesday evening.

During this month, Muslims across the globe observe fast known as sawm from dawn to dusk to commemorate the first revelation of the Holy Quran to Prophet Muhammad.

Amosun also enjoined Muslims to fervently pray for Nigeria, noting that "this period in our nation calls for our collective and individual prayers for the fulfilment of our aspirations and desires as a country and as citizens".

Fayemi, in a goodwill message to the Muslim Umah said the Ramadan season offered the faithful a unique opportunity to draw closer to the Almighty Allah and deepen the relationship with him in total submission to his will. It involves self-reflection, goal-setting, and fasting. "By doing this, Allah, in his faithfulness, will accept our sacrifices and answer our prayers", he added.
