Ramadan fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam. Know sehri time, iftar time here.
Ramadan, or Ramzan, is a time of spiritual reflection and increased devotion. To mark Ramadan, Muslims across the world will keep roza, a holy fast from sunrise to sunset. “Sehri“, a pre-fast meal will be eaten before the sunrise and the fast will be broken with a post-fast meal called “iftar”. During the day, the worshippers will not eat or drink even a drop of water and observe prayers five times a day. Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is called “sawm“. Among the other pillars are “salat“, which means performing ritual prayers five times each day – Fajr (dawn), Dhuhr (noon), Asr (afternoon), Maghrib (evening), and Isha (night); then “zakat” – which means paying charity to benefit the poor; and “hajj“, which is a pilgrimage to Mecca.
