The Holy month of Ramadan is almost upon us; once again, it is time to partake in the fast, purify our mind, body and spirit, and work to become closer to Allah (SWT).
As the Islamic calendar follows the lunar cycle, the month of Ramadan rotates by approximately ten days each year, depending on the sighting of the moon. In 2019, it is expected that Ramadan will begin on the evening of Sunday 5th May, with the first day of fasting on Monday 6th May.
The arrival of Ramadan also brings ample opportunity to reap infinite blessing and reward. During this auspicious month, remember to donate your zakat and any other contributions with Al Mustafa Welfare Trust.
