Colombo Grand Mosque has announced that the Muslims in Sri Lanka will commence their Ramadan fasting at dawn on Friday 18th May. The announcement was made on Wednsday, May16.

"Ramadan is also known as Ramadhan or Ramazan. It falls in the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. The word "Ramadan" is derived from an Arabic word for intense heat, scorched ground or dryness. The Muslims all over the world fast during the holy month of Ramadan.

Fasting was made obligatory (Waajib) for every Muslim who is mentally and physically fit and healthy. This obligation was decreed on the eighth Islamic month of Shaban, in the second year of Hijra after the Muslims migrated from Mecca to Medina," Muslim scholars say.
