Millions of Muslims around the world on Monday marked the start of Ramadan, a month of intense prayer, dawn-to-dusk fasting and nightly feasts. Others will begin fasting a day later, Tuesday, due to a moon-sighting methodology that can lead to different countries declaring the start of Ramadan a day or two apart. During the holy month, Muslims do not let food or drink pass their lips from dawn to dusk.
As the holiest month of the year, it is a crucial period for practicing Muslims and underpins some of the religion's core values, such as prayer and giving to charity.
