In the days of fasting the greatest congestion on the roads is observed in the hours before sunset, when the faithful rush home to have time to sit at the table with family and share with loved ones meals, at the time of terminating post — «iftar». Broken on the road cars not only deprive their owners and passengers opportunities to dine, but also often create many kilometers of traffic jams.

«Will be formed into fourteen brigades, which will include traffic police, who can arrange an accident or to arrange a detour and mechanics, are able to efficiently repair the car. Brigade will be equipped with all necessary tools and spare parts», — reports the edition with reference to a source in the state office of traffic police of Cairo.

The beginning of the fasting month of Ramadan is usually determined by the observation of the sky, the young Crescent — thin moon «sickle». The Observatory and the religious management of the Arab and Muslim countries make a special announcement about the end of the preceding Ramadan, the lunar month of Sha’ban and the beginning of lent with the sunrise. This year watch for the appearance of the new moon will be on Friday 26 may and, if you see her, may 27 will be the first day of fasting.

Ramadan — at the same time complex physical and moral test of fasting, which this month during the daylight hours is forbidden not only to eat but to drink and smoke and indulge in any entertainment.

Best exercises for fasting during this period, prayer and charity. The authorities of the Islamic countries this month, as a rule, reduce the workday to provide employees and workers an opportunity to rest more.

The time of iftar (the light meal after the sunset) before the suhoor (early Breakfast before dawn) — a real feast when fasting Muslims go to visit, gather with friends and families in restaurants in the Ramadan special menu.
