Ramadan Countdown Begins, Only 15 Days Left!
Ramadan Countdown Begins
The Islamic Hijri (lunar) calendar considers Ramadan to be the holiest and most sacred month.
Muslims believe that during this holy month, the archangel Gabriel descended from heaven and revealed the Message to the Prophet Muhammad.
During Ramadan, Muslims increase their level of spiritual and physical submission to God by fasting.
They refrain from eating, drinking, smoking, and having intimate contact between husband and wife from dawn until dusk.
Ramadan dates and calendar 2023
The lunar calendar predicts that in Pakistan, Ramadan 2023 will most likely fall on Thursday, March 23, 2023.
However, according to tradition, a moon-sighting committee made up of religious scholars, astronomers, and other authorities must establish the precise date of the start of the holy month while it is still dark.
The committee is in charge of keeping an eye out for specific sightings related to the cycle and appearance of the new crescent moon, which marks the beginning of Ramadan.
Rules for Ramadan
Pakistan forbids the consumption of food or beverages in public during Ramadan.
Both private and public offices fall under this. In addition to facing severe fines and penalties, breaking this law could land you in jail for up to three months in the worst scenarios.
Eating in public during Ramadan is only allowed for those who are keeping the fast.
Those who are not keeping the fast are only allowed to eat in their homes behind closed doors.
Both men and women should avoid wearing clothing that is too tight or too revealing.
