Holding on to hope when everything seems dark, is the greatest test of faith. Never have we needed prayers more than we do now. Throughout this holy month, may Allah bless us all with resilience and strength. Ameen

In the face of the global coronavirus pandemic, Muslims are preparing for an isolated and solitary Ramadan, with millions cooped up at home under social lockdown and mosques shuttered.
This year Ramadan will be different than usual. Sadly, Muslims across the world will be deprived of praying at mosques this year. Prayers in the congregation are banned even in the whole Muslim world. Shops are closed except for medical and food items. Still, Muslims are exhilarated and hope to celebrate the holy month with full zeal and zest. Also, follow the accurate Ramadan timings here.
