Ramadan 2019

Date: 03 May 2019

The month of Ramadan will begin in the evening on Sunday 5 May and end the evening of Tuesday 4 June. The month of Ramadan involves periods of fasting for Muslims, this means abstaining from food, drink (including water) and smoking. While fasting is an important part of Ramadan it is also a time of self-reflection and self-evaluation for Muslims. 

The holy month is also where many Muslims will focus on prayer, while generosity and giving to good causes or neighbours is encouraged.
