To all those observing the Muslim fasting month, or simply celebrating it with friends and families, The New Arab wishes you a very happy Ramadan 2020.

The holy month of Ramadan is a special time for the nearly two billion people who profess the Muslim faith around the world. It's a spiritual time of fasting and worship but also of family and community celebration and charity.

In Ramadan, believers fast from dawn to dusk and then gather around a family or community meal each evening during what is Islam's holiest month, which begins in most countries on Friday 24 April, and ends with the feast of Eid al-Fitr a month later.

But due to the coronavirus pandemic and the social distancing measures in place across most countries with large Muslim populations, many will find themselves struggling this year and many were already struggling from poverty, conflict, and occupation.

The New Arab is launching a special coverage series for Ramadan, highlighting the struggles, underscoring the suffering, but also finding positive stories of resilience, solidarity and celebration.
