The moon of the holy month of Ramadan 2022 has been seen in the sky of Saudi Arabia. The Khaleej Times reported on Friday, citing Saudi authorities, that the country would begin fasting on Saturday (April 2nd).
Devout Muslims have no end of interest in when the holy month of Ramadan begins this year. Although the beginning of Ramadan depends on the sighting of the moon, the day on which fasting begins in Middle Eastern countries is usually the day after it in Bangladesh. As a result, many people are anxious to know whether the moon was seen in those countries on Friday.
According to the Khaleej Times, the neighboring United Arab Emirates has announced that it will observe the fast from Saturday following the news of the sighting of the moon in Saudi Arabia.
Earlier, several countries announced the start of Ramadan this year. The Imam Council of South Australia confirmed in a Facebook post that the month of Ramadan was observed in Australia on Friday. So fasting will be observed there from Saturday. In Egypt, the holy month of Ramadan will start on Saturday.
- Officials in Brunei said the month of Ramadan was not observed in their country on Friday. For this reason, the last day of the month of Shaban will be observed there on Saturday, so the fast will start on Sunday.
- Malaysia and Indonesia, two of Asia’s largest Muslim countries, have also said they will observe the holy month of Ramadan from next Sunday.
