Islamic holy month of Ramadan to start from tomorrow confirms Saudi Arabia

Guide to Ramadan in Dubai

According to reports on Saudi Arabian state TV, bad weather made observation of the crescent hard.

The holy month of Ramadan will begin on Thursday on Saudi Arabia and adjoining Gulf region.

Renowned TV anchor Ibrahim Eissa released a statement concerning Ramadan in a program on the US-based Television channel Alhurra, stirring outrage on Egypt's social media.

In Japan the Ruet-e-Hilal committee announced it had not received any reports of moon sightings. She went on to explain her belief that exams that "change the course of your life [are] a valid reason not to fast" and "Ramadan involves personal sacrifice but I don't think the opportunity of getting into college/uni should be one of them". A month starts in the Islamic calendar only after sighting of moon.

While the U.S. will begin the Ramadan fast on Wednesday, Saudi Arabia and Morocco will have to wait one more day.

The "Hilal" which in Arabic is for "crescent" is viewed as the beginning of the holy month.

On June 2, the eighth annual Ramadan Day of Service will take place in partnership with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, 1-4:30 p.m.at 3355 S. Purdue in Oklahoma City.

Adam Soltani, executive director of CAIR Oklahoma, has seen Ramadan through both the Muslim and Christian perspective.

Those that do not sight it are to complete the thirtieth day of Sha'baan and automatically start Ramadan the next day - in this case on Thursday May 17, 2018. In case the new moon is not sighted, then Ramadan in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and other South Asian countries will begin on Friday May 18, 2018.

Muslims who fast during Ramadan abstain from eating, drinking and sex from dawn to dusk for the entire month.

It is on this night, which falls during the last 10 nights of Ramadan, that Muslims believe that God sent the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad and revealed the first verses of the Quran.

A street staller sells cakes to celebrate the end of Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr, outside the East London Mosque, Whitechapel. "In the United States, we are all blessed to live under a Constitution that fosters religious liberty and respects religious practice", said Trump, who is still trying to impose a travel ban on people from the Muslim-majority nations Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen.

US President Donald Trump today greeted Muslims observing Ramadan and said the holy month is a time of self-reflection meant to deepen one's spiritual growth.
