Earlier, the Australian National Imams Council declared that Ramazan will begin today (Thursday). If it happens, it will one of the rarest occasions, when Muslims in India, Pakistan and Bangaldeh will start Ramadan along with Muslims I Arab and Western countries.

Ramazan is a holy month for the world's almost 1.5 billion Muslims, many of whom practise the ritual of dawn-to-dusk fasting and prayers. He observed that the holy month is an opportunity for introspection. Ramadan is sacred to Muslims because tradition says the Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) during that month. For Muslims who live in regions where Islam is not the dominant religion, challenging fasts are believed to come with greater blessings.

Arrangements have begun for "namaz-e-taraveeh", special prayers offered every night throughout the month.

Jamiat Ul Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Information Secretary Abdul Jalil Jan, when contacted by this scribe, expressed pleasure over same-day fasting throughout the country and praised the committee in this respect.
