"The non-sighting of the new moon on Sunday means that the first day of Ramadan and the start of mandatory fast falls on Monday", Sec. Breaking the fast in the evening is called "Iftar" where a feast is spread.

The Speaker said, "As Ramadan begins, I want to felicitate with our Muslim brethren for witnessing yet another season of spiritual significance".

Muslims follow a lunar calendar, and a moon-sighting methodology can lead to different countries declaring the start of Ramadan a day or two apart.

There are exceptions to fasting for children, the elderly, the sick, women who are pregnant, nursing or menstruating and people travelling.

Muslims around the world celebrate the holy month of Ramadan by praying during the night time and abstaining from eating, drinking, and sexual acts during the period between sunrise and sunset.

Anwar Zeydieh, a mother of three, said she fears a similar scenario this Ramadan.

Fasting is also seen as a way to learn patience and break bad habits.

Because of the "great importance" of Ramadan, he said, President Rodrigo Duterte was expected to issue an official statement greeting the Muslim Filipinos and other Islamic faithful worldwide.
