Ramadan 2023: to begin on Thursday, Dubai announces Ramadan 2023 public transport plan

The moon-sighting committee met after the Maghrib prayer on Tuesday

Saudi Arabia has announced the start of Ramadan 2023 for this Thursday, March 23.

The crescent moon, which marks the start of the holy month, was not sighted on Tuesday evening in Saudi Arabia, meaning that Wednesday would be last day of Sha’ban, with Ramadan starting on Thursday.

Saudi Arabia had earlier called on Muslims across he kingdom to sight the crescent, with the Supreme Court calling on anybody who sights the crescent to report it to the nearest court or observatory.

The UAE has announced the start of Ramadan 2023 for this Thursday, March 23.

State news agency WAM confirmed the news in a tweet.

 The holy month of Ramadan will begin in the UAE on Thursday, March 23. The moon-sighting committee said the crescent moon — which signals the start of a month in the Islamic Hijri calendar — was not spotted on Tuesday (March 21) night.

Islamic months last for 29 or 30 days, depending on when the moon is sighted. Since the moon was not spotted today, Wednesday, March 22, will be Sha’ban 30. Ramadan 1, therefore, is on March 23.

As per astronomical calculations, the holy month will last for 29 days this year. The first day of Eid Al Fitr is likely to be on Friday, April 21, and residents will get a four-day weekend to mark the occasion.
