BREAKING!! Ramadan Moon Spotted In Saudi Arabia


The crescent moon, signifying the beginning of the Holy month of Ramadan, has been sighted in Saudi Arabia.

The moon was spotted on Sunday evening.

This means March 10 is the last day of the month of Sha’ban and the Holy Month will begin on Monday, March 11.

Ramadan, determined by the lunar Islamic calendar in which months span either 29 or 30 days, commences and concludes based on the sighting of the crescent moon.

Saudi Arabian authorities had earlier called on Muslims to sight the crescent for the commencement of the Ramadan.

The Supreme Court had called on whoever sighted the crescent to report to the nearest court and register their observation.

Australia, Malaysia, Philippines and Brunei have announced March 12 as the beginning of Ramadan.
