Ramadan delayed as new moon not sighted

Iman Wissam Abdul Baki addresses those attending the Islamic Society of Western Massachusetts interfaith event and dinner during Ramadan

Saudi Arabia and Bahrain's moon sighting authorities have announced that Ramadan will begin on Thursday May, 17.

Fasting is considered one of the five pillars of Islam.

Fasting is seen as a way to become closer to God through a detachment from material pleasures. It falls in the 9th month of the Muslim year during which all those in faith fast from dawn to dusk.

Trump has repeatedly ripped federal judges who have questioned or blocked his ban over the past 15 months, calling them "so-called judges", and their rulings "ridiculous" - and predicting he would eventually prevail. It's seen as a way to physically and spiritually detoxify by kicking impulses like morning coffee, smoking and midday snacking. It is a time where Muslims fast every day from dawn to sunset, and in the United States that is approximately 16 hours of no food and water every day for a month. It is recommended to avoid gargling and just rinse mouth to avoid drinking water accidentally.

Along with abstaining from consuming and consuming, Muslims additionally improve restraint, akin to abstaining from sexual relations. North African countries and those in the Middle East will also begin the fast on Thursday.

Muslims throughout the world fast for different hours. So we can feel what the less fortunate feel every day and so we can be better people. This will be the third year RMCC has held the event, Fehmi said.

Across the Arab world, juices made from apricots are a staple at Ramadan iftars. Taraweeh is an extra set of prayer specifically for Ramadan.

Imam Imad Enchassi, founder, lead imam and president of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City (ISGOC), said some are exempt from the daily fast, including those who are ill, the elderly and young, travelers and those pregnant or breastfeeding.

It's common practice across many Muslim-majority nations for liquor stores and hotels to curb the sale of alcohol during Ramadan.

The month before Ramadan is called Sha'baan. Often, restaurants shutter their doors during the day. This is the most important meal during Ramazan since it has to last until sunset.

Ramadan is also a time of feasting with family and friends. In Pakistan, live game shows give away gifts promoting their sponsors.

Devout Muslims also mark the month by intense worship, performing special nightly prayers and reading Islam's holy book, the Koran.

Some devout Muslims go into reclusion those final days, spending all of their time in the mosque.
