Hyderabad: The month of Ramzan will begin from Tuesday in India. It is considered as the holiest month in the Islamic calendar. Ramadan celebrates the moment in which the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad, in accordance with Islamic belief. Across the world, Muslims fast each day for the entire month of Ramadan, abstaining from food and drink from dawn to dusk.

The Arabic phrase Ramadan Kareem means to enjoy a blessed and happy Ramadan.

Muslims in Southeast Asian countries like Indonesia and Malaysia, and much of the Middle East, including Egypt, Iraq and Saudi Arabia, will fast on Monday for the start of the month of Ramadan. Millions more, however, in India, Pakistan and Iran, will mark the start of the lunar month on Tuesday based on moon sightings there. 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.

The Ramzan fast will start from Tuesday in India and the timing for Sehar is 4.20 am and Iftar is 6.43 pm. The fast will be for 14 hours and 23 minutes in the first few days and the timing will extend to 6.45 pm and go up to 6.50 pm and 6.53 pm by the month end.

  • The Importance Of Ramadan

Across the world, Muslims fast each day for the entire month of Ramadan, abstaining from food and drink from dawn to dusk. That means around 15 hours without food, water, cigarettes or caffeine. Fasting is aimed at drawing worshippers closer to God through self-control, remembrance and humility. The challenge of fasting for many is also a chance to reset spiritually and physically, kick bad habits and purify the heart.

During the day, Muslims must also abstain from sex, gossip and cursing, and are encouraged to focus on meditative acts like prayer, reading the Quran and charity. It's common practice across many Muslim-majority nations for liquor stores and hotels to curb the sale of alcohol during Ramadan. Often, restaurants shutter their doors during the day.

Those exempt from fasting include children, the elderly, the sick, women who are pregnant, nursing or menstruating, and people travelling.

  • The Start And End Of Ramadan

The Ramadan fast begins with a pre-dawn meal called "suhoor" to prepare hungry stomachs for the long day ahead. A typical suhoor often includes bread, vegetables, fruits, yogurt, tea, as well as lentils and beans.

At sunset, when it's time to mark the end of the daylong fast, families and friends gather for an evening meal known as "iftar".

Muslims typically break their fast as the Prophet Muhammad did some 1,400 years ago, by eating sweet dates and drinking water, followed by a sunset prayer. Then, the iftar meals are enjoyed. These are often lavish affairs of home-cooked platters of rice, stews and meat, as well as spreads of desserts and other sweets.
