If the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia declares the beginning of Ramadan from today, most among the Muslims in Europe would begin fasting from tomorrow.

Muslims see the prayers as a chance to exchange Eid greetings and meet with their neighbours, family and friends.

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan and the first sighting of a new moon and in 2018, it will be celebrated on June 14, 2018.

The month long observance which will begin from either May 15 or May 16 will see the Muslims observing fasting from sunrise to sunset, Reciting Quran, attending their prayer sessions and much more.

The month of Ramadan is observed in order to commemorate when Allah gave the first chapters of the holy book Quran to the prophet Muhammad.

The lunar month lasts between 29 and 30 days depending on the sighting of the moon.

They abstain from eating and drinking from dawn to dusk for the entire month of Ramadan, with a single sip of water or a puff of a cigarette considered enough to invalidate the fast.
