The Amir of the Islamic community in Spain announces that not having been sighted the crescent of the moon in the reference area; today is set the start of Ramadan for next Tuesday 7th of June. The month of Sha’ban has been fulfilling with its cycle of 30 days.
Allah says in the Qur’an
O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous –
(Fasting for) a limited number of days. So whoever among you is ill or on a journey (during them) – then an equal number of days (are to be made up).
And upon those who are able (to fast, but with hardship) – a ransom (as substitute) of feeding a poor person (each day).
And whoever volunteers excess – it is better for him. But to fast is best for you, if you only knew.
The month of Ramadan (is that) in which was revealed the Qur´an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights (the new moon of) the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intends for you hardship and (wants) for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that (to) which He has guided you.
And perhaps you will be grateful!
Sura Al-Baqara (183-184-185)
We ask Allah to give us ease in this holy month and the greatest of the rewards in this life and the next, amin
