JEDDAH, May 27: Is the start of holy month of Ramadan, the Supreme Court announced on Thursday, Arab news reports said.
The crescent moon was not sighted on Thursday and so fasting will start Saturday. “The moon will be out/disappear on the entire Islamic world, Thursday and, based on this, there is no crescent,” astronomer Khalid Al-Zaaq, a member of the Arab Union for Astronomy and Space Sciences said in a series of tweets.
He added that this year’s Ramadan will begin and end on a Saturday, which makes it a 29-day month. “(Ramadan) will have four Fridays,” he added. #ramdan🌙
