Ramadan 2018 date: Looking for Moon on 29th Shaban tonight

She went on to explain her belief that exams that "change the course of your life [are] a valid reason not to fast" and "Ramadan involves personal sacrifice but I don't think the opportunity of getting into college/uni should be one of them".

It is compulsory for all Muslims to fast except those who are exempted: children, the elderly, the sick, women who are pregnant, nursing or menstruating, and people travelling. It will commence when the new crescent moon is spotted, which will be either Tuesday or Wednesday. On that day, somewhere in the Pacific Ocean at sunset, the elongation is 8 degrees and the moon is 5 degrees above the sun.

As so many people unite to celebrate Ramadan, Melania and I join in the hope for a blessed month.

Dr Huda Al-Kateb, Programme Leader BSc Food and Nutrition at Birmingham City University, said:"During Ramadan, the hunger and dehydration might affect our cognitive abilities which often means that our ability to make wise choices when it comes to what food and drink that we consume during after the period of breaking the fast".

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. In the United States, for example, while some Muslims follow astronomical calculations and the predictions of the Islamic Society of North America, many others prefer to start Ramadan on the same day as Saudi Arabia.

It is a time where Muslims fast every day from dawn to sunset, and in the USA that is approximately 16 hours of no food and water every day for a month. Muslims around the world are making special arrangements for Iftar - the meal to break the fast, so that poor Muslims don't suffer.

Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, and though staying away from food and water is the main element, Muslims also have to abstain from drinking, sexual activity, and cursing. He also highlighted that there are many health benefits to fasting in Ramadan, as it allows for toxins in the body to be replaced.

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.

The common greetings during the month are "Ramadan Mubarak" and "Ramadan Kareem", wishing the recipient a "blessed" and generous Ramadan. Official decision by Central Moon Sighting Committee Pakistan, Religious Affairs Ministry Bangaldesh and Central Moon Sighting Committee New Delhi is expected soon after Salate Maghrib Wednesday evening.
