Muslims worldwide prepare for start of Ramadan 2018

Five-a-side face-off to help players during Ramadan When does Ramadan end and when is Eid al-Fitr? Everything you need to know

In March, Sharjah Centre for Astronomy and Space Sciences said Ramadan would likely fall on May 17 with Eid Al Fitr, marking the end of the month, expected on June 15. It's seen as a way to physically and spiritually detoxify by kicking impulses like morning coffee, smoking and midday snacking. Those with medical conditions or women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or menstruating are exempt from fasting.

"I already think about how I'm a convert, and all these other things that in a lot of people's hearts and minds disqualify me from being Muslim", Imani says, "so then not being able to fast makes me feel left out".

Muslims give to the poor and those in need during Ramadan.

"We consider this the best time of the year".

"It's something we're used to at breakfast time and it's also great at Ramadan", she said.

She notes U.S. Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad fasted throughout her intense training sessions and so did many Muslim soccer players during the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Muslims interact in elevated prayer and charity throughout Ramadan.

Ramadan is observed by Muslims worldwide, including numerous thousands of Muslims in Rochester - according to one estimate, as many as 1 in 13 city residents practices Islam - and the public is invited to join or watch prayer observances and other related events this month. Couples must abstain from sexual intercourse during the day, and Muslims should not engage in road rage, cursing, fighting or gossiping.

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

As an adult, he doesn't miss an opportunity to share his faith with others, and Ramadan is an important period of reflection and growth each year.

The quick is from daybreak to sundown, with a pre-dawn meal often called suhur and sundown meal known as iftar.

Shaker said he believes the presidential greetings have helped Americans know more about Ramadan and Muslim Americans. In Ramadan, Allah is close to us because we are also close to Him.

Devout Muslims also mark the month by intense worship, performing special nightly prayers and reading Islam's holy book, the Koran.

Ramadan is the holiest month in the Muslim calendar, it is the month in which Prophet Mohammad started receiving revelations from God. During that time every year, I remember people bustling about in fresh markets, grocery shopping to prepare for the evening's fast-breaking meals, and how the fabric stores were packed with people shopping for their Eid outfits.
