The new moon of Ramadan was not spotted on Tuesday evening and Wednesday will mark the last day of the Islamic month of Shaaban, SPA said, citing religious authorities in the kingdom.

During the day, Muslims must abstain from eating, drinking, sex, gossip and cursing, and are encouraged to focus on meditative acts like prayer, reading the Quran and charity.

"The fast is performed to increase spirituality, discipline, self-restraint, and generosity while obeying God's commandments", according to the release. Children, pregnant women, elderly and unwell people and girls who are menstruating are allowed not to fast.

So they said that Ramadan will start from 17th of May. "If they can't afford to feed the poor and the needy, they can serve the poor and the needy as a compensation for not 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.

Soltani is the son of an Iranian Muslim who emigrated to the United States and married a white Catholic from Olathe, Kan., while they were attending the University of Kansas.

He said, "We should, therefore, prepare ourselves physically for this month". All things being equal, we must engage in Ramadan to reform ourselves and society in order to build our nation. "It's a time, more or less, of self reflection". That's why, if your co-worker says, "Starting tomorrow, can I start work early so I can leave sooner?" try to accommodate. In general, they're also more open to seeking spirituality outside the realm of Islam.

Fasting is seen as a way to become closer to God through a detachment from material pleasures. If your Muslim co-worker takes a pass, understand.

The barriers to interfaith understanding also are high in Oklahoma, simply because of the state's demographics.

A 2015 Pew Research Center report found Islam is the world's fastest growing religion, on track to surpass Christianity this century. However, fasting isn't just about depriving oneself but improving oneself, practitioners said. So don't be alarmed when you see a swarm of people walking out at around 11:30 pm.

Ramadan isn't like Christmas or Thanksgiving, as in everyone knows exactly when it'll fall.

The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) board of directors, staff and volunteers extend their greetings to all Muslims on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan. In Ramadan, Muslims' souls will be freed. Dinner will be catered from local restaurants.

The UAE government has reduced working hours for the public and private sector for the holy month of Ramadan. It is the month of laylatul qodr - a night said to be better than a thousand months. For instance, at least four Palestinians were detained past year for committing the offense in public. But it's not going to hurt our feelings - even if we're best friends. This time of year, observant Muslims here would have to eat before 3:40 a.m. Exceptions are made for people for health or medical reasons.

Islamic scholars are firm that if the Ramadan moon is sighted in most parts of the Middle East today, then it would be viewed in Southeast Asia, South Asia and the Indian subcontinent tomorrow.
