Ramadan from tomorrow, if moon sighted this evening

"It puts you in a different mindset", Fehmi said of the fast.

Covering the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is a period of fasting which commemorates the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad, the Islamic prophet.

Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam, along with the Muslim declaration of faith, daily prayer, charity, and performing the hajj pilgrimage in Mecca.

Iftaar time is for water, dates and well-balanced meals - It is traditional for Muslims to break their fast with a date, which has scientific benefits.

The Sultan of Sokoto and President General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) Alhaji Muhammadu Sa'ad Abubakar has urged Muslims across the country to look for the new moon of Ramadan Wednesday. This Ramadan comes amidst true humanitarian tragedies that those several Muslim countries with wars, divide and conflict violating the spirit of the message of peace, gatherers, unity, love and coexistence. But for high school and college students who also have to study and take exams during this time, the fasting can be particularly challenging - so they're trading tips and moral support on Twitter. "Just as it is not logical that a police officer discusses medicine, the government should prevent those who do not understand Islam from discussing Islamic issues such as fasting", Al-Atrash explained. So, people - you'll find them to be much more generous. Like prayer, it can be a personal experience.

He said, "We should, therefore, prepare ourselves physically for this month".

"We consider this the best time of the year".

"Each person may experience it differently", Fehmi said.

Ramadan is beginning for the world's Muslims.

For Fehmi, it helps him feel fortunate for what he has and to feel empathy for those struggling. "You have given up eating for a certain number of hours, but think of the people who will not even have a next meal".

The points were written up based on analysis of the common foods consumed during the month, along with reflection on what foods are best at providing sufficient energy throughout the day.

Whiles prices of food are said to be soaring in parts of Nigeria due to the Ramadan, Somalia and Kenyan authorities are also feverishly undertaking measures to ensure that terrorist groups are not allowed to carry out attacks.
