Muslims across the world will celebrate the holiest month of the year, Ramadhan, in next week.

Iran (IMNA) - This year, the holy month of Ramadan which is the biggest festival of Muslims will start on the evening of Thursday 23 April 2020, and will end on the evening of Saturday 23 May. During the holiest month of the year, Muslims around the world and throughout Iran will endure a period of daily fasting which is a kind of religious observance in Islam.

For Iranians as one of the world's largest Muslim population, this month represents a holy time to fast, practice spiritual reflection and self -improvement with a great focus on devotion, and honor the religion's basic values such as prayer.

The world is now dealing with a global lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak; so, Muslims are going to prepared themselves to observe a different month of Ramadan. Unfortunately, mosques would be kept closed and people gatherings are strictly not recommended these days.

This may lead to a bad news that is people won’t be able to follow i’tikaf at their local mosques or they won’t be able to have Iftar dinner with their friends and acquaintances as it used to be.

Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Thursday appealed for Iranians to pray at home during the Muslim fasting month of Ramazan to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

We hope that the Nights of Destiny in Ramadan will be the celebration days of defeating coronavirus if God wills.
