  • This crescent moon a symbol of Islam tops the roof of the Hoover Crescent Islamic Center

Supreme Mufti Sheikh Kasule Ndirangwa has spoken about the special significance of fasting in the Islamic faith as Muslims in Uganda prepare to begin Ramadan tomorrow, Thursday on May 17. Stay connected with us to get the confirmed date for Ramadan 2018 after moon sighting. Official decision by Central Moon Sighting Committee Pakistan, Religious Affairs Ministry Bangaldesh and Central Moon Sighting Committee New Delhi is expected soon after Salate Maghrib Wednesday evening. In case the new moon is not sighted, then Ramadan in India will begin from May 18, Friday.

The Saudi Royal Court said, "In the event of not receiving any testimonies about the sighting of the Ramadan crescent on Tuesday evening, Ramadan fasting will begin on Thursday".

The month will end when the new moon is sighted again, with the Eid Al Fitr holiday. The festivities occur on the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and the annual ceremony is regarded as one of the five pillars of Islam.

Already, President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his greetings and best wishes to Muslims in Nigeria and across the world as they commence the 30-day Ramadan fast.


Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar urged for Muslims to practice spiritual reflection as the season of Ramadan begins.

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. It is followed by the Eid al-Fitr festival.

Talking numbers, the not-for-profit organization explains that 80% of U.S. Muslims said they fast Ramadan while 20% said no.

The emphasis on charity and selflessness is not merely the province of those who are fasting: there are numerous opportunities to volunteer across the UAE, whether that involves packing Ramadan parcels for the needy, serving meals to workers at an iftar or doing a kindly deed for a neighbour.
