The sighting of the moon ushers the holy month of Ramazan. Muslims observe fast marking it as a gesture to revere the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief.
During Ramadan or Ramzan Muslims across the globe observe a 30-day fast, known as Rozas, praying for forgiveness. In India, the moon was sighted in Kerala and Karnataka on Thursday (April 23) evening, thereby declaring Ramadan beginning from April 24.
This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month lasts for about 29–30 days (usually a month) based on the visual sighting of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths.
Here's wishing our readers Ramzan Mubarak!
