Ramadan: Let's return to Allah, Amosun tells Muslims

Can you drink water during Ramadan? The fasting rules explained

On his part, Amosun admonished Muslim faithful in the state to seize the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan as an opportunity to engage in sober reflection and absolute return to Allah.

Ramadan falls on the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and holds a great significance for the Muslim community across the globe.

Felicitating with Muslims on the start of the Ramadan fast, the governor said they should not see the month as one of mere mandatory prayer, fasting and Iftar meals, but engage in total abstinence, probing soul-searching, honest repentance and infinite atonement.

"Consequently, tomorrow becomes the first day of Ramadan and I urge Muslims in the country to commence fasting according to the teaching of Islam", Abubakar said. My sincerest wishes go to all Muslims for good health and happiness during this Holy Month and throughout the coming year. Muslim devotees are required to abstain from food, drink and sex from dawn to dusk during Ramadan. Muslims are encouraged to spend time in contemplation, prayer, reading the Quran and charity during the day.
