The beginning of Ramadan 2018 depends on moon sighting.

The Ramadan Moon Sighting Committees in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) followed with a similar statement declaring that the first day of Ramadan 2018 will be Thursday May 17, 2018.

For most Muslims, the guidelines for observing Ramadan state no food nor drink can pass the lips after daybreak and before nightfall.

Shaker said the center provides Muslims free meals to break their fast.

This year Ramazan (Ramadan) begins on the evening of Tuesday May 15 and ends on the evening of Thursday June 14.

Academics and students on the University's Sport and Exercise and Nutrition courses, including Dr Huda Al-Kateb, Dr Matt Cole and PhD researcher Ayaz Safi, have written up a guide featuring tips on nutrition, hydration and exercise to help people fasting for Ramadan to keep to a regular routine as much as possible.

It is meant to bring Muslims closer to God and teach them about patience, spirituality, and humility.

"When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained".

Others who may not fast include pregnant or lactating women whose babies may be harmed, women in their menstrual period or having postpartum bleeding and others in situations that require them to be in their best physical condition (i.e. soldiers on guard duty). Other than fasting they also engage in charitable activities.

Ramadan is seen as a special event for Muslims, as the community devote their time and focus to prayer, purification and charitable acts.

Also on Tuesday, President Rodrigo Duterte greeted his Muslim constituents on the advent of Ramadan, expressing hope they would intensify "resolve to achieve spiritual cleansing and growth".

All Muslims have to pay zakat during the month of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting.

Ramadan is the holiest month for Muslims as it is regarded to be the month that the holy Qur'an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad on the night of Laylat al-Qadr, one of the last 10 nights of Ramadan. At this time of year, some television stations broadcast advertisements that bring attention to Muslims as an important part of United States society.

Ramadan is a moving celebration, as the Islamic community works on a lunar calendar, giving a different month of Ramadan each year.
