Ramadan to start on Thursday, religious leaders say

"As the holy month begins, I wish all those celebrating a very happy and prosperous Ramadan Kareem, " Pompeo said. The person fasting abstains not only from food and drinks from dawn to dusk, but also from lying or speaking ill about anyone behind their backs or do anything that is morally incorrect.

She notes U.S. Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad fasted throughout her intense training sessions and so did many Muslim soccer players during the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The Australian National Imams Council (ANIC) also confirmed that the Ramadan moon was not sighted anywhere in Australia. There are a total of around 470 hours of actual fasting (almost 20 full days) in daylight hours during Ramadan 2018.

He added that fasting is simply an interpretation of abstract orders from Allah (God) by Muslims, rather than a divine law that must be followed.

Growing up in a multi-faith, Roman Catholic and Muslim home, Soltani didn't start fasting for Ramadan until he was 17.

The faithful in Turkey, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia and others prayed the holy month's first taraweeh, a special nightly prayer and one of the hallmarks of Ramadan, on Wednesday.

Eid Al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, may fall on Friday, June 15, Eid al-Adha on August 22, and the first day of the Islamic year, Fatih-Muharram, 1440, may be on September 11, as the astronomers formerly predicted.

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.

He said Ramadan is a time of self-reflection meant to deepen one's spiritual growth and renew a sense of appreciation for the many blessings God provides. This includes most children before they reach puberty, elderly people and the sick, travellers and women who are breastfeeding or menstruating.

"Tonight is the 29 of Shaban", said Atthar Mahmood, vice-president of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada.

Ramadan is the holiest month in the Muslim calendar, it is the month in which Prophet Mohammad started receiving revelations from God. Other than fasting they also engage in charitable activities. Umrah is known as the lesser Hajj, a pilgrimage that can be undertaken at any time of the year.

Ramadan is a moving celebration, as the Islamic community works on a lunar calendar, giving a different month of Ramadan each year.
