Donald Trump Sends 'Best Wishes' to Muslims on Ramadan

The Arab states did not sight the moon after which the Arab media had said that the Holy month would commence from 17th of May. "There has been no moon sighting in Canada or even North America".

During this period, Muslims are encouraged to read the whole Quran throughout the month before the Holy festival of Eid Al-Fitr whiles they stay away from eating and drinking during day time when there is daylight.

Sugary dates are traditionally eaten to break fast in the evening.

With Ramadan starting on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, the 30-day period will come to an end on Thursday, June 14, 2018.

The objective of the fast is to remind the suffering of the less fortunate people and to bring the followers closer to God.

In his December 2015 campaign speech, Trump also said that most Muslims hated America.

The holy month of Ramadan will begin on Thursday on Saudi Arabia and adjoining Gulf region.

Ramadan, which falls on the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is a month of prayer, reflection, and fasting from sunrise to sunset - all meant to bring those observing closer to God.

During the holy month of Ramadan, the Muslim community abstain from food and other sins throughout the day, observing one of the most special months of the year. North African countries and those in the Middle East will also begin the fast on Thursday.

Fasting is not considered compulsory for many groups - including people who are unwell or have a long-term condition; people with learning difficulties; people who are travelling; and women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or menstruating.

Adam Soltani, executive director of CAIR Oklahoma, has seen Ramadan through both the Muslim and Christian perspective.

The "night time of energy" or "night time of decree" is taken into account the holiest night time of the 12 months, as Muslims consider the primary revelation of the Koran was despatched all the way down to Muhammad on this night time.

Muslims interact in elevated prayer and charity throughout Ramadan.

Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five obligatory pillars of Islam, along with the Muslim declaration of faith, daily prayer, annual charity - known as "zakat" - and performing the Hajj pilgrimage in Makkah.

In conflict-affected areas like Palestine and Marawi City, the lone Islamic community in the Philippines, Ramadan fasting would be more hard for Muslim constituents to observe, but their sacrifices are bound to earn more Divine rewards, according to Islamic scholars.
