Ramadan: Pray for Peace, Stability In Nigeria - Dogara Urges Muslims

To put it in other words, eight out of ten American Muslims say that they fast during the holy month.

In France, fasting will last for 18 hours.

Eight in ten Muslims admit to fasting in Ramzan, according to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center.

Rabat- The Islamic holy month of Ramadan will start Thursday May 17, declared the French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM). 79% of US born Muslims fast while 80% of the ones born overseas do the same thing. "In the United States, we are all blessed to live under a Constitution that fosters religious liberty and respects religious practice", said Trump, who is still trying to impose a travel ban on people from Muslim-majority nations of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

The U.S. has a growing Muslim population, estimated to total 3.45 million at the moment, but surveys have shown that many still don't believe the religion is accepted in the American mainstream.

Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, and though staying away from food and water is the main element, Muslims also have to abstain from drinking, sexual activity, and cursing.

Starting on Thursday, Muslims all over the world will welcome the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. During this time, many pious Muslims traditionally devote more time to prayer, reflection and helping the needy.

At the end of Ramadan, Muslims traditionally celebrate the Eid al-Fitr holiday with candies, gifts for children, charitable donations and social events. For Pew Research, not all of those who observe Ramadan care much about praying five times a day and attending a mosque once a week.

Before dawn to prepare for the next day of fasting, families often wake in the night for a light meal known as "suhoor", eating fruits and vegetables, or a small dish with beans, lentils, bread or rice.
