Vladimir Putin congratulated the leadership and people of Saudi Arabia on the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
It is added that it was agreed to continue contacts at various levels.
Ramadan is part of the lunar calendar and begins with the appearance of the moon. As you know, the lunar calendar is 11 days shorter than the Gregorian calendar, so every year Ramadan starts 11 days earlier than the previous year.
During this period, during the day it is forbidden to drink, eat, smoke incense, enjoy pleasures and indulge in entertainment; daytime should be dedicated to work, prayers, recitation of the Qur’an, pious thoughts and deeds, charity.
Eating and drinking is allowed only after sunset and before sunrise. The sick, children, people on the road, soldiers participating in hostilities, etc. are exempted from fasting in Ramadan, but the unfulfilled fast must be compensated at another time. During Ramadan, Muslims are required to generously distribute sadaqa (voluntary donations) and zakat (compulsory alms).
