Holy month of Ramadan
International Astronomical Center confirms the first day of the Holy month

The first day of the Holy Month of Ramadan will fall on 2nd April in most Muslim countries. This is as per the confirmation by the International Astronomical Center ( IAC ).

Eng. Mohammed Shawkat Odeh, Director of the IAC, said the month of Shaaban started on 4th March, 2022, in most Muslim countries.  Most of them will monitor the crescent of the Holy Month of Ramadan on 29th Shaaban 1443 hijri year, corresponding to 01st April.

Seeing the crescent on Friday, 01st April, is not possible with the naked eye from anywhere in the Islamic world. It can be viewed only with the help of a telescope, but with great difficulty from parts of the west of the African continent.

With a telescope from parts of the Islamic world on Friday it is possible to see the crescent. It is customary for most Islamic countries to announce the start of the Holy Month of Ramadan the next day. This is due to the occurrence of the conjunction before sunset and the setting of the moon after sunset in all regions of the Islamic world.

02nd April, Saturday will be the first day of the Holy Month of Ramadan.
