Ramadan is the Islamic month when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk.
Egyptian Grand Mufti, Shawqi Ibrahim Abdel-Karim, announced that Ramadan would also start on Wednesday in Egypt.
The beginning of the month depends on the first sighting of the crescent moon, according to astronomers in every Islamic country. As the Islamic lunar year is 354 or 355 days long, Ramadan starts approximately 10 days earlier in each Gregorian year.
Muslims observe Ramadan by fasting from dawn to dusk every day. The month culminates in Eid al-Fitr, the feast of breaking the fast.
