The sultan said this in a statement by Sambo Junaidu, Wazirin Sokoto and chairman, advisory committee on religious affairs, on Sunday.

The Ramadan month is a time for reflection, contemplation, and celebration when Muslims around the world observe fasting for 29 or 30 days.

The Islamic calendar follows the phases of the moon, known as the lunar cycle, falling nearly 10 days earlier every year in the Gregorian calendar.
