Online desk : The holy month of Ramadan begins begins in the country on Saturday as the new moon was sighted in the sky of Bangladesh on Friday evening.

The National Moon Sighting Committee made the announcement after a meeting held at the Islamic Foundation’s Baitul Mukarram office after Magrib prayers today. Religious Affairs Secretary Nurul Islam presided over the meeting.

Lailatul Qadr, the night of divine blessing and benediction, will be observed on the night of May 20.

Muslims are meant to fast from dawn to dusk during the lunar month, a time of restraint and austerity.

This year, maximum 12 people, including two imams, can attend Tarabi prayers in mosques each during the holy month of Ramadan.

The step was taken to prevent the transmission of fast-spreading coronavirus.Besides, no public gathering in the name of iftar mahfil will be allowed.

On April 6, the Religious Affairs Ministry asked people to offer Zohr prayers at home instead of Jum’a on Friday considering the current situation of coronavirus.
