Ramadan moon sighting announcement by UAE Committee,

All eyes in the UAE and many other Arab countries will be set at the heavens today to sight the Ramadan moon.

The UAE’s Moon Sighting Committee and the Supreme Judiciary Council of Saudi Arabia will meet today in their respective countries to witness the Ramadan crescent.

Muslims in the Middle East, Europe and the US will be anxiously waiting for the announcement of advent of the holy month as majority of the Muslims in the Western countries follow Saudi Arabia’s Islamic Hijri calendar. The Hijri date is the Islamic calendar which started in the moon year in which Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) immigrated from Makkah to Madinah.
