In Saudi Arabia, a Ramadan moon has been spotted, The Saudi authorities announced on Sunday that the first Roza will take place in the kingdom today (Monday) as the first moon of Ramadan, 1445 Hijri, will be visible in the sky during the holy month.

There was a moon sighting in the kingdom that marked the beginning of the blessed month. 

This week’s Ramadan crescent was confirmed by the nation’s moon gazing committee, the social media handle for both holy mosques: Makkah’s Grand Mosque and Madina’s Prophet’s Mosque.

Today is the first day of fasting in Saudi Arabia (Monday).

Saudi Supreme Court announced Sunday evening (March 10) that the crescent was seen. 

There have been reports from Saudi Arabia that the Ramadan moon has also been sighted in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), shortly after the Saudi reports. 

It has been declared by the Saudi Arabian apex court, a moon sighting committee in the UAE, and the Saudi government that the crescent moon will appear this evening (Sunday) and that their citizens should look for it and report it.

The Saudi Arabian government is usually the first to observe the moon during Islamic months in order to predict the lunar eclipses, followed by other Arab countries, countries in the Middle East, countries in the West, and in some parts of India.

Several Asian countries, such as Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and other countries in South & Southeast Asia, mark the start of the holy month a day earlier than other countries.

It is a time of religious zeal and fervor that greets Ramadan throughout the Muslim world. In the month of Ramadan, more than a billion Muslims will fast to promote charity and welfare while also practicing patience and self-control.

Traditionally, Islamic months last 29 or 30 days, and when a month begins or ends is determined by the appearance of a crescent, so the date of Ramadan each year doesn’t have a set time or date.

This month is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and it is the ninth month of the year. Due to being based on the orbit of the moon, the Islamic calendar is nearly 10 days shorter than the Gregorian calendar even though it has as many months as the Gregorian calendar.

Because of this, Ramadan is always held at a different time according to the Gregorian calendar each year as a result of the lunar calendar.
