KARACHI: The moon sighting committee of Saudi Arabia said that the crescent had not been sighted in the Kingdom.
Accordingly, Monday, April 12, will be the last and 30th day of Shaban 1442 Hijri which means, by default, the first day of Ramazan will be on Tuesday, reported Aaj News.
Sunday marks the 29th day of Shaban, the month before Ramazan according to the Islamic calendar. Ramazan lasts for one complete moon cycle, which is usually 29 or 30 days. The moon sighting determines the duration.
Earlier, Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court also urged all the Muslims in the country to sight the crescent of the holy month and report the sighting to the nearest court and register their testimony.
