The Sultan of Sokoto and President General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) Alhaji Muhammadu Sa'ad Abubakar has urged Muslims across the country to look for the new moon of Ramadan Wednesday. This fast is called Roza.
From why the month of Ramadan moves to how it is celebrated, here is your guide to the holy month. It is the most holy month in the calendar for Muslims as it is believed the Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammed during Ramadan.
Fasting is one of Islam's five pillars, alongside declaration of monotheism, prayer five times a day, alms-giving, and the pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
Mass prisoner pardons have become a common practice by rulers in the Gulf Cooperation Council at the start of the holy month, which is meant to be a time of generosity and charitable giving. They are also encouraged to engage in more charity work while they fast to bring them closer to God and remind them of the suffering of the less fortunate.
Note that on the last day of Ramadan, which is Eid al-fitr, the greeting changes to "Eid Mubarak".
