Among the Five Pillars of Islam, Ramadan is the third. Ramadan observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (Sawm) to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief.
However, fasting for one month is mandatory for Islam to be very orderly and fair. The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths.
Allah commands in the Holy Quran -
"O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous"
Ramadan 2018 will begin on the evening of Tuesday, May 15 and ends on the evening of Thursday, June 14.
