Happy Ramadan! The entire Muslim community across the world is celebrating Ramadan. This year Ramadan begins from Thursday, April 23, and will conclude on Saturday, May 23, 2020. Ramadan or Ramzan is recognised as the holy month when Muslims worldwide observe fasting from dawn to dusk. It falls in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar to mark the first revelation of the holy book, Quran, to prophet Muhammad. Amidst Coronavirus lockdown, the festive fervour that we see every year has taken a backseat but this hasn’t stopped people from showering best wishes for their loved ones on social media.
As the auspicious Ramzan begins, B-town have been showering wishes for everyone on their social media accounts.
