Muslims in Singapore and all over the world are currently observing Ramadan - the ninth month of the Muslim calendar, which is a time for fasting.
Before dawn, many Muslims observe a pre-fast meal called 'suhoor'. This is followed by the first prayer of the day. At sunset, families break fast with a meal known as 'iftar'.
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong broke fast at An-Nur Mosque on July 17 and encouraged non-Muslims to "take the opportunity to break fast with your Muslim friends.
"This is how to celebrate our diverse cultures and religions, and build a cohesive, multi-racial Singapore." he said.
