    Start of Ramadan (may be changed to the nearest day)

    -
    Thursday March 23, 2023
    Muslim, Sufi : The month of Ramadan enjoys a special importance in the Islamic calendar. It is the chief of all months and the most glorious one. Ramadan is the month of fasting, intensive prayer, sacrifice and Divine worship. Throughout this month a devout Muslim fasts during the day in the true sense of the word, that is, he does not merely deny himself food and water, but as explained by Islamic Scripture, he exercises strict control over his tongue, eyes, ears, thoughts and deeds and does everything possible to seek the pleasure of G-d. The month of Ramadan, besides being the month of worship and Divine blessings, carries a historical importance as well. The revelations of the Qur'an commenced in this month as did the epoch-making 'Battle of Badr' and the 'Conquest of Mecca'.

    Secular holiday : Yang di-Pertuan Agong, a Malay title usually translated as Supreme Head , Supreme Ruler or Paramount Ruler , is the official title of the constitutional head of state of the federation of Malaysia. The position is often categorized as King in English, since from a Western political science perspective, Malaysia is a constitutional monarchy with a monarch as head of state. Since 1993, the full title in Malay has been, Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong. Prior to that the honorific Ke Bawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia was also used. The consort of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is called the Raja Permaisuri Agong. Both are referred to in English as His/Her Majesty .
