As the holy month of Ramazan approaches, Muslims worldwide eagerly await the start date, which is determined by the Islamic lunar calendar. The first day of fasting for the holy month of Ramazan in Mecca is expected to be on Thursday, March 23, following Saudi Arabia’s announcement on Tuesday.
The new moon for Ramazan is predicted to begin on March 21 at 17:23 GMT (8:23 pm Mecca time), with no sightings of any type being expected that night. On the night of March 22, the new moon should be easily visible to the naked eye across many parts of the Middle East, North Africa, Western Europe, and the Americas.
In Pakistan, the first fasting day of Ramazan is expected to be March 23, with the new moon sighting on March 21. However, if the moon is not sighted, the first day of fasting will be March 24.
Ramazan is a month of deep spiritual reflection, self-discipline, and renewal of faith. Muslims worldwide prepare for the month by adjusting their diet, increasing water intake, and engaging in more voluntary prayers and supplications.
As the start date approaches, Muslims worldwide embrace spirituality and community in anticipation of a transformative experience that enhances faith, purifies the soul, and strengthens community bonds.
