Cabinet wishes Muslim community well on Ramadan

Thursday, May 10, 2018

Cabinet has extended well wishes to the Muslim community as they begin fasting for the holy month of Ramadan next week.

During Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset, as they spend time deepening their spirituality.

Ramadan in 2018 will begin in the evening of May 15 and will end in the evening of June 14. The beginning and end are determined by the lunar Islamic calendar.

For Muslims worldwide, Ramadan is a time of introspection, an occasion for strengthening family and community bonds and also of increased generosity, charity and service to the most vulnerable in society.

It is also a time for reflection through fasting and prayers. – SAnews.gov.za
