Muslims in Philippines began fasting and prayers to mark the start of the holy month of Ramadan.

Worshipers performed noon prayers at the Golden Mosque, the largest in the Philippine capital.

Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk.

In Malaysia, members of one mosque promoted Ramadan's values of sharing by preparing Burbur Lambuk.

The rice porridge is made with beef and coconut milk and was handed out to the poor.
