Instagram has launched new features on the occasion of Ramadan. There are three new stickers on Instagram created for Ramadan that started on April 12, and will continue until May 11. The new Ramadan stickers can be used in Instagram Stories. The Facebook-owned company regularly launches stickers to celebrate festivals, and commemorate important events around the world.

Tara Bedi, Public Policy and Community Outreach Manager, Instagram, Facebook India, shared the announcement on her Instagram profile. Instagram worked with Hala AlAbbasi, an illustrator from Bahrain, to create the three stickers for Ramadan. “Hala hopes that her stickers will be used throughout Ramadan to mark moments of celebration, from greetings to special suhoors and iftars, all the way to celebrating Eid,” Bedi wrote in her post.

The three stickers feature the moon, iftar food, and a mosque in colourful illustrations. Instagram has also placed the stickers under ‘Featured' so they appear on top in the sticker stray. The stickers will also be visible through a multi-author story on Instagram. So if you have people you follow use any of the Ramadan stickers, they'll appear together in a collated story in your feed.
