First day of Ramadan in Nepal

The first day of Ramadan started in Nepal on Saturday amid a nationwide lockdown.

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

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar and it is believed that the revelation of the first verse in the Koran occurred during its last 10 nights.
