Ramzan is just a few days away and preparations for the month of fasting have begun with shopkeepers starting to sell sweets like sawain and other items popular with devotees. A Jamia Nagar resident Shafaque Alam shared a photo on his timeline commenting: “Preparation for Ramzan has begun somewhere in Jamia Nagar.”
Ramzan this year is most probably to start from Friday or Saturday. Come the month of fasting, Muslims visit to mosques increase manifold. Facilities for iftars are also made at mosques across the country. Nightly prayers called Tarawih are also held in mosques after iftar.
