Ramadan to start on Thursday in Bahrain

Islam and the environment

Saudi Arabian moon observers said that there was no sight of the Ramadan crescent on Tuesday, meaning millions of Muslims around the world will begin the holy month on Thursday. "May the fruits of fasting, prayers and almsgiving among other good deeds during the blessed holy month of Ramadan enrich our lives and bring about peace and prosperity." said Imam Mustapha Elturk, AHRC Founding & Executive Board Member.

It is compulsory for all Muslims to fast except those who are exempted: children, the elderly, the sick, women who are pregnant, nursing or menstruating, and people travelling.

We may have encountered at least one of our Muslim friends who might have expressed the fact that swallowing saliva can break the fast. Ramadan is also the time to maintain self-discipline. That means the dawn-to-dusk fasting is expected to begin on Thursday.

"May Allah shower his countless blessings on believers on the holy month of Ramadan and always".

Students and academics at Birmingham City University in the United Kingdom have come up with a guide featuring tips to support the wellbeing of those who fast and to help them retain as much energy as possible throughout the day.

5The fast breaks at sundown.

Muslims follow a lunar calendar, and a moon-sighting methodology can lead to different countries declaring the start of Ramadan a day or two apart.

Muslims pray the "dhuhr" or noon prayer at the Golden Mosque in Globo de Oro in Quiapo, Manila, yesterday. In Egypt, lantern called "fanoos", which is often placed at the centre of the iftar table, can sometimes be seen hanging in window shops and balconies during Ramadan.

Increasingly common are Ramadan tents in five-star hotels that offer lavish and pricey meals from sunset to sunrise.

Yesterday, ustadz (Islamic cleric) Paisal Hamid said: "Similar lonely Ramadan observance is imminent here since all major masjids (mosques) remain in rubble after destruction in military airstrikes and artillery fires".

The end of Ramadan is marked by intense worship as Muslims seek to have their prayers answered during "Laylat al-Qadr" or "the Night of Destiny".

Ramadan is a 30 day period of fasting recognizing the completion of the holy book by the Prophet Muhammad.

Finals are a stressful time for pretty much anyone.

7 The fast ends with the festival of Eid al-Fitr, which is celebrated with gifts to charity and to one another, visits and parties.
