COLOMBO (News 1st); The Colombo Grand Mosque announced that Muslims in Sri Lanka will begin a month of Fasting for Ramazan from 2nd April 2022.
Also known as Ramdan, Ramazan is one of the most important months for Muslims all over the world.
It is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar which people observe as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection while engaging in humanitarian activities.
People observe a fast for which they wake up early in the morning to have their first meal, and in the evening, they break their fast with the evening meal called iftaar.
The crescent moon, which marks the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, was sighted in Saudi Arabia yesterday, the moon sighting committee announced.
The last fast of the Ramadan month is expected to be observed on May 1 as it lasts from one sighting of the crescent moon to the next. The end of the holy month is celebrated as Eid-ul-Fitr.
