With the sighting of new moon marking the advent of the holy month of Ramazan, a new zeal and enthusiasm is being
witnessed among Muslims.
Thousands of people thronged city mosques to offer Tarawih prayers which are being offered at hundreds of mosques in the city, at open spaces and parks where Qaris recite the Holy Quran.
In some part of the country, particularly in the tribal areas, Sunday was observed as first Ramazan in line with the sighting of moon in Saudi Arabia in view of the tradition to celebrate Islamic festivals on the day these are observed in Saudi Arabia.
Almost all the mosques have been illuminated, and in many localities shops of eatables, particularly milk and bakery products, hotels and restaurants remained open till late in the night, and people purchased different items for Sehri.
