Ramadan Confirmed By The Sunni Ulama in UK. First Fast Will Be This Saturday 27 May 2017 In’Sha’Allah. Taraweeh Pray Will Be Today Friday 26 May 2017 After Isha Pray in UK.
There are almost three million Muslims in the UK, and they’ve been gearing up for the holy month of Ramadan, which is observed every year.
Many of us know in general terms what the event entails – fasting and prayer are in there, of course, as are family gatherings.
The Seher will be eaten between 2.30am to 3 am, the evening meal (iftar) is eaten around 9pm-9.30pm in United Kingdom.
Fasting is done out of the love for Allah (God) and shows devotion, willpower, discipline, patience, selflessness, adaptability, unity, and closeness to the supreme being.
During Ramadan, fasting is compulsory for every Muslim who is mentally and physically fit and healthy.
But not everyone takes part. There are some exceptions.
Children under the age of puberty, normally around 14, are exempt but are encouraged to gradually start giving up some food and drink during Ramdan so they are better prepared when they reach the age of full fasting.
