President Mamnoon said that the Holy Month of Ramadan teaches peace, brotherhood patience and perseverance.

He added the age of the new moon on Wednesday evening will be more than 26 hours in all cities of Pakistan, and the difference between sunset and moonset will be 58-60 minutes.

The others are the profession of faith ("there is no God but Allah and Mohammed (PBUH) is his messenger"), the obligation to pray five times a day, charity, and the pilgrimage to Mecca.
