It is the time of the year when Muslim devotees all around the world observe the strict annual fasting for one month to commemorate the time when Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad. The 30 days of fasting, which begins with the first sighting of the crescent moon, marks the end of the month of Shaban – the eighth month of the Islamic calendar.

The fasting is expected to begin in the UAE on June 6 and the following day in India, Pakistan and other countries. Reports suggest that if the crescent moon (hilal) is not sighted on June 7 in India, the fasting is likely be on June 8.

Observing fast during the holy month of Ramadan is considered one of the five pillars of Islam, when devotees abstain from eating or drinking from dusk to dawn.
