The decree was adopted in accordance with Article 91 of the Constitution, the official communiqué from the Presidency of the Republic noted, and in accordance with rahma (mercy, in Arabic), the quintessence of Ramadan, the unofficial Al Moudjahid newspaper reported.

Ramadan, which this year began on April 1 and will end on May 1 of the Gregorian calendar, is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar that the Muslim faithful dedicate to prayers and meditation, in addition to practicing alms-giving and fasting as an offering to Allah, the only god, whose prophet is Mohammed and his holy book, the Koran.

Islam, one of the three main monotheistic religions, is practiced by more than 1.5 billion followers all over the world.
