Mumbai, March 15: As Muslims in Mumbai, Delhi, and across India observe the fourth Roza of Ramzan today, March 15, preparations are underway for the fifth Roza on March 16. The holy month of Ramzan, also known as Ramadan, commenced on March 12 following the sighting of the crescent moon on the evening of March 11. Muslims worldwide engage in fasting, prayer, reflection, charity, and humanitarian activities during this sacred month. Ramadan holds immense significance in Islam, with fasting being one of its five pillars.

From dawn to dusk, Muslims abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs as an act of worship and obedience to Allah. The day begins with Sehri, a pre-dawn meal consumed before the Fajr (morning) prayer, and concludes with Iftar, the evening meal to break the fast after sunset. As the fifth Roza approaches, Muslims in various cities of India adhere to different Sehri and Iftar timings, determined by geographical location and celestial observations. In Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Lucknow, and other major cities of India, Muslim communities follow a schedule tailored to their local time zones. Ramadan 2024 Do’s and Dont’s: Know What Is Allowed and Not Allowed During the Sacred Fasting Month.
