    Default Starting of Fasting Month, Tomorrow or Wednesday?

    Fasting month of Ramadhan is about to start. I'm asking on behalf of my 2 Muslim colleagues. Does anyone know the exact date? Should they start tomorrow or Wednesday?

    Wishing all Muslim CSers a great fasting month.
    Thanks!

    One of my colleague is quite firm that fasting starts on Wednesday while the other think it could be tomorrow too. Just need a confirmation.

    From what I've heard from ALL my Muslim colleagues, fasting will commence on Wednesday.

    the obligatory fasting, which falls on the 9th month of the muslim calender (Ramadhan), starts this Wednesday, 5th Oct 2005.

    Those Muslims who were fasting before this date were doing so either becos they were paying back last year's fast, which they missed (due to some reasons) or they were performing the non-compulsory fast.

    This document contains each day's start and end time for fasting for the entire month.
