Ramadan 29 falls on Friday May 22. The end of the holiday is expected to be on May 26, but an official date will be confirmed after a moon sighting.

The holiday marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, the month-long period when Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset and is usually celebrated with family and friends.
