MUSLIMS PREPARE TO OBSERVE THE HOLY MONTH OF RAMADAN...!!!


 Muslims around the world begin fasting on Friday 20 July 2012, in observation of Ramadan, the holiest month in Islam when the faithful abstain from eating food or drinking water from sunrise to sunset.

Every year, identifying the start of Ramadan is like a waiting game; Islamic scholars must see the new crescent moon in the night skies before the holy month officially begins. 
Unlike the Gregorian (or Western) calendar, the Islamic calendar is based on lunar patterns.  And the lunar month begins with the sighting of a new moon.
This annual and greatly anticipated announcement is typically made by Islamic authorities in each country (although many countries in the Middle East follow the moon sightings of scholars in Saudi Arabia).

JG Blog Team would like to wish all our Muslim family, fans & friends a prosperous & meaningful Ramadan!
