Ramadan Mubarak 2013

Ramadan 2013

The Holy Month of Ramadan officially starts tomorrow, 10 July 2013, with the sighting of the crescent moon this evening. For thirty days, Muslims would wake up early in the morning (about 3 AM), everyday and eat Shuhur: foods prepared before the beginning of fasting. The official fasting wherein no foods and drinks—even water—are allowed begins at the break of dawn until the sun sets.


We wish our Muslim brothers and sisters a Blessed Ramadan full of Peace and Happiness

The adhan (call for prayer) during Maghrib or dusk prayer marks the end of one fasting day. As the call for prayer: “Allahu akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu akbar!” is recited in the masjids, the Muslims at same time would break their fast with light foods (iftar) before going to prayer. After prayers, dinner will be served.
