  • Ramadan 2018 At sunset families gather to break the fast with a meal known as Iftar

Ethiopian Islamic Affairs Supreme Council (EIASC) has called on Muslims to observe the fasting month of Ramadan by supporting the needy, and tending to displaced citizens. Muslims follow a lunar calendar, and a moon-sighting methodology can lead to different countries declaring the start of Ramadan a day or two apart.

The committee for moon-sighting of UAE met after the Maghrib prayers yesterday to announce the date of start of Ramadan.

The Ramadan fast, in which even water is prohibited, falls on especially long summer days this year for Muslims in the Northern Hemisphere.

"In Qur'an chapter 2 verse 183, Allah prescribed fasting as an obligation for Muslims and tells us the reason at the end which is for us to restrain from evil, learn God's consciousness and learn to be God fearing". It is also a chance to kick addictions like caffeine and cigarettes.

Traditionally, the majority of Muslims have begun fasting on the dates set by Saudi religious authorities, but recently many have used their own astronomical calculations, rather than waiting to see the moon for themselves or for the Saudi declaration.

While fasting, Muslims must also abstain from sex, gossip and cursing.

Ramadan also is observed by most of the world's 1.8 billion Muslims, according to a Pew Research Center report published in 2012.

However, young children, pregnant women, the elderly or ill do not have to fast to avoid potential health problems.

"As the holy month begins, I wish all those celebrating a very happy and prosperous Ramadan Kareem", he added.

Muslims wake up before dawn, which is known as Sehri, to eat their first meal of the day.

Ramadan began at sundown on Tuesday evening, and Eid al-Fitr begins at sundown on June 14.
