Sarajevo Celebrates the Beginning of Ramadan

The beginning of the month of Ramadan was made official with a traditional cannon shot at 18:05 from Sarajevo's "Uta Tabija" .

In recent years, the Ramadan top has become a real attraction, both for the people of Sarajevo and for numerous tourists. 

This year, the event was magnified by numerous children who, carrying balloons in their hands, enjoyed themselves together with others who watched the traditional cannon firing. 

After the cannon shot, the balloons were released into the air. This act was attended by officials, including the Mayor of the Municipality of Stari Grad Sarajevo. 

Muslims in Nigeria observed the first day of the holy month of Ramadan. 

After sunset prayers in Lagos, worshippers gathered for iftar, a meal accompanied by treats like candies and nuts. 

According to Islam, fasting draws the faithful closer to god and reminds them of the suffering of the poor.
