Mangaluru: Crescent moon sighted - Ramadan to begin from April 24


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru

Mangaluru, Apr 23: Ramadan will begin in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts from Friday, April 24. The crescent moon was sighted on Thursday, April 23 in Kerala after which Dakshina Kannada Qazi Twaka Ahmed Musliyar declared the start of the Ramadan month.

Ramadan is the ninth and most sacred month in the Islamic calendar. Muslims skip food and water from dawn (Fajr) to dusk (Maghrib) during this month. Muslims eat Sehri, which is an Islamic term referring to the meal consumed early in the morning before fasting, and break their fast at Iftar, the evening meal consumed to break the fast at sunset. Special night prayers called Taraveeh are offered in mosques during Ramadan.

Fasting or Roza in the holiest month of Islamic lunar calendar is one of the five pillars of Islam. Fasting during Ramadan is not just about abstaining from food and drink, the real purpose is to attain purity and piousness in order to be closer to Allah.

Ramadan begins around 11 days earlier each year. Its start is calculated based on the sightings of the new moon, which marks the beginning of the Muslim lunar month that varies between 29 to 30 days. Ramadan culminates with the celebration of Id-ul-Fitr festival.

    REAL CHALLENGING RAMADAAN.....Rich has to survive on ordinary food whatever available in market due to lockdown and poor may be guarrentted with food kits supplied by the govt or charitable organisations where he has no problem to sacrifice. Thtats why we say in islam allah has plans , Avoid iftar gathering and mosque visit as we are facing carona calamity and reffer the vallied authentic hadees of our beloved prophet in some the pandamic situation.
