Ramzan, the month of fasting in Islam, will start from Sunday as the moon was not located.
A representative of Delhi’s Jama Masjid said as the moon was not yet sighted, the fasting won’t start saturday.
Sehri, which is the pre-day break dinner eaten by Muslims who keep quick, will start today’s night.
Ramzan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The month closes with Eid ul-Fitr and relying upon the calender it keeps going either 29 or 30 days, with again the sighting of the new moon.
Amid this month Muslims avoid food and water from dawn to sunset and join mass prayers at mosques.
This annual observance is viewed as one of the five pillars of Islam.
