"Ramadan is a time of self-reflection meant to deepen one's spiritual growth and renew a sense of appreciation for the many blessings God provides".

In the United States, people of different national origins gather at Islamic centers for religious services and to celebrate their beliefs. "I love ramadan so i hope this doesn't ruin my experience because of stress and as for now i'm not sure if i am going to be keeping all my fasts either".

They also offer more prayers, contribute more money to the poor and regularly study the Quran.

Those demographic leanings make it "really tough being Muslim in Oklahoma", Soltani said, especially for Muslims who live outside urban centers like Oklahoma City and Tulsa.

In a series of tweets, Cavusoglu said: "We aim to feed 100,000 of our brothers during Ramadan, by providing hot meals to 1,000 families daily through TIKA [Turkish International Cooperation and Coordination Agency]".

The consuming of dates normally breaks the quick at sunset.

Saudi Arabia will observe the Ramadan fast on Thursday, May 17, as the crescent moon was not observable on Tuesday, the authorities announced in a statement.

She added: "I know people may quote hadith at me and theologically they may be right but, then again, there weren't state exams when the rules were written so I think it's a case of using common sense and doing what you feel is right, a decision between you and God". The Australian Muslim Council of Imams, too, declared that Ramadan will fall on Thursday. Amina Tanboush of Senegal describes some of those duties.

Responding to Eissa's comments, the former head of the Fatwas Committee in the Al-Azhar Mosque, Abdel Hamid al-Atrash, told Egypt Independent on Tuesday that Eissa is not authorized to give an opinion on Islamic matters. In Ramadan, Muslims' souls will be freed.

"That's obviously challenging this time of year", Hasan says.
It is a time of self-examination and increased religious devotion.

The end of Ramadan is marked by intense worship as Muslims seek to have their prayers answered during "Laylat al-Qadr" or "the Night of Destiny".

Discussion about religion is popular during Ramadan.

British expat Darren Streete, who embraced Islam just five months back, said: "This year will be my first year of fully participating in the holy month of Ramadan". George Grow was the editor. Write to us in the Comments section, and visit our Facebook page.
