The holy month of Ramzan, also referred to as Ramadan ul Kareem, is scheduled to begin in the coming week. The first roza or fast would be observed on either April 23 or 24 in Saudi Arabia and other parts of the Middle East. In most of the Indian subcontinent, the first date of Ramzan, as per the gregorian calendar, would begin on April 24 or 25. Wishing and greeting is part of all festivities and Ramzan is not an exception. Here are the WhatsApp messages, HD images and stickers to send to your Muslim friends, relatives, co-workers, neighbours and others.

The month of Ramzan is defined by the dawn-to-dusk fasts, which is obligatory on all Muslims who are not minor, and not facing any health-related ailments. The believers are even more steadfast in offering their daily five prayers during 29 or 30 days of Ramadan, and also offer the Taraweeh prayers during the night. Notably, no prayers or iftar would be arranged in mosques this year due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
