  • Description

    PRESIDENT NASSER OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) ATTENDED THE FINAL DAY OF PRAYER IN THE MONTH OF RAMADAN. THE PRESIDENT JOINED ALL MOSLEM DIPLOMATIC MISSIONS IN THE CELEBRATION, AT THE EL AZHAR MOSQUE IN CAIRO.

    THE CELEBRATION OF RAMADAN DATES BACK FOURTEEN CENTURIES, TO THE REVELATION OF THE KORAN. DURING THE MONTH OF RAMADAN MOSLEMS MUST FAST SEVERELY, ABSTAINING FROM FOOD AND DRINK FROM SUNRISE TO SUNSET, EACH DAY OF THE MONTH.

    MOSLEMS BELIEVE THAT IN THIS MONTH, GOD SENT DOWN THE KORAN TO GABRIEL, SO THAT IT MIGHT BE REVEALED TO THE PROPHET MOHAMMED.

    FOLLOWING THE FINAL CELEBRATIONS AT THE MOSQUE PRESIDENT NASSER DROVE, IN AN OPEN CAR, THROUGH STREETS LINED WITH CHEERING PEOPLE.
