Muslims in Ghana are joining Muslims around the world to begin their mandatory 30-day fasting and prayers from today, Monday, 6 May 2019.

The fasting started after Saudi authorities announced spotting the Ramadan 1440 moon.

The UAE also officially confirmed that Ramadan 1440 will begin today – after the Ramadan crescent was sighted in UAE on Sunday morning.

The fast is to enhance the spiritual growth of all Muslims.

Ramadan is a compulsory tenet of the Islamic religion and followers are encouraged to observe it except for those who have special medical conditions that may prevent them.

Over 1.8 billion Muslims across the world are expected to embark on this year’s fast – a pillar of Islam.
