Suspension of Islam’s Ramadan

Posted November. 14, 2004 23:32,   


Muslims who performed a Ramadan service for a month have started the Muslim religious festival, a closing ceremony of Ramadan, on November 13 and 14. Ramadan has a one-day difference in its start and end, depending on the region. When Ramadan is finished, believers visit their family and close acquaintances and offer clothes and candy to children. The festival continues for four to five days and all the government and public offices, companies, and schools are closed during this period. Muslims are attending a prayer service at a port in Jakarta, Indonesia, starting the festival.
