Start of Ramadan (may be changed to the nearest day) -
Tuesday June 7, 2016

Culture : Originally Ramadama is the name of the ninth month in the Arab world. It is, above all, a month of fasting. Fasting was not born with Islam. The abstaining from eating and drinking is mentioned in the Old and New Testaments, which precede the prophet Muhammad. Thus, in the Bible, it is mentioned that Queen Esther asked the Jews to fast for three days before asking her husband to spare the Jews. According to the New Testament, Jesus fasted for 40 days in the desert. Referring to this episode, Christianity has a fasting period of 40 days called Lent . Today, the fasting period of practicing Catholics lasts from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday. The start of Ramadan generally depends on local observation of the moon crescent, but others choose the calculation of the new moon or the statement of Saudi Arabia to determine the start of the fasting period. The three main prohibitions of Ramadan are: eat, drink and have sex, It is possible to swallow one's own saliva, but not the water with which mouth was rinsed. Muslims can go swimming or take a shower, as long as they do not swallow the water. Perfumes with alcohol are prohibited. Nail biting is allowed if the nails are clean. Fruits such as dates are recommended after breaking of the fast, provided they do not come from Israel. Travelers, pregnant or menstruating women are allowed to stop fasting. Practitioners usually gain weight during this period. The punishments are particularly heavy in Algeria, in Kuwait, in the United Arab Emirates, in Bahrain and in Saudi Arabia. NOT a public holiday
