While some Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia have announced May 6th as the first day of Ramadan, it has officially been announced that the Holy month of Ramadan in Iran will begin on Tuesday May 7, 2019.
The advent of Ramadan may vary from country to country depending on the situation of the moon. Since the new moon is not in the same state at the same time globally, the beginning and ending dates of Ramadan depend on what lunar sightings are received in each location.
As a result, Ramadan dates vary in different countries, but usually only by a day which is due to the cycle of the moon.
Ramadan is a special time for the Muslim population of Iran which the country has celebrated for centuries – with fasting from sunrise to sunset is one of the integral parts of the Islamic celebration.
What is Ramadan?
The ninth month of the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is a time when Muslims around the world abstain from eating, drinking or smoking between sunrise and sunset.
Lasting about a month, it marks the time when the Qur’an was first revealed to the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). Extra tarawih prayers are performed at the mosque throughout Ramadan and each evening 1/30th of the holy book is recited. By the end of Ramadan, many observers have read the entire Qur’an.
Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, which are the foundation of the religion. The pillars are the framework by which Muslims everywhere live, and Ramadan is considered the holiest time in the Islamic calendar. It is a time for prayer, reflection and religious devotion, to cleanse past sins and to focus on Allah through good deeds.
