The sighting of the moon ushers the holy month of Ramazan. However, in Kerala, it started a day in advance on May 5. In India Ramadan or Ramazan will begin from May 7 and May 6 for UAE and European countries. After 30 days of Shaban, the moon will be sighted in India on May 6 and from the next day, Muslims in the country will begin their Rozas (fasts).

Ramzan or Ramadan falls on the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and holds a great significance for the Muslim community across the globe. During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims observe fast marking it as a gesture to revere the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief.
