The Uganda Muslim Supreme Council officially announced that effective Saturday, April 2, Ramadan will kick off for all Islamic faithful and will last for 30 days until at least 1st May 2022. The dates are based on the ever-changing lunar calendar.

It is during this time that Muslims observe a period of fasting and refrain from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset. Those observing the tradition will wake up before sunrise so that they can pray, eat and drink to fuel their bodies ahead of the day.

Muslims believe that the physical ritual of fasting allows them to understand the suffering of others and is also a way of increasing their closeness to God.

People are encouraged to engage in charity and devote extra time to spiritual activities such as praying and reading the Koran.

Ramadan, the ninth month of the Muslim calendar, usually lasts 29 or 30 days, depending on the lunar calendar, but the dates change each year. To mark the end of Ramadan, Muslims celebrate with a feast, known as Eid ul-Fitr.
