A Muslim should strictly observe the timings of Iftar and Imsak as well as those of the five prayers. Timing differences among the different emirates should be taken into consideration by adding 4 minutes for Abu Dhabi and subtracting 4 minutes for Ras Al Khaimah and 6 minutes for Fujairah.
Dubai Smart Government is providing an SMS service for inquiring about prayer timings as well as the timings of Iftar and Imsak only during the Holy Month of Ramadan in co-operation with Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department. Send the code P to 4488 to get the timings. For further information, please call AskDubai on 7000 40000.
Fasting in Ramadan comes to an end with the appearance of Shawwal crescent marking the first day of Eid Al Fitr when Muslims celebrate following the rituals they have performed. They, however, must not forget to invite their needy fellow men to share with them in their happiness.
