1st Ramzan Fast Likely To be Observed on 24 March: RHRC


Newstoday: According to the Ruet-i-Hilal Research Council (RHRC), while the holy month of Ramazan is unlikely to fall on March 23, the first fast is likely to be conducted on March 24. The new moon can only be seen if it is at least 19 hours old at sunset and the interval between sunset and moonset is more than 40 minutes in all country locations. The crescent will begin its new cycle at 10:23 p.m. on March 21 (Tuesday). Nevertheless, because of weather circumstances, it will not be visible to the human eye on March 22 evening. But, he noted, a sighting cannot be ruled out if clouds do not obstruct the crescent's visibility. As a result, the likelihood of the first Ramazan starting on March 23 was extremely low. It should be noted that the holy month will most probably start on March 23 in practically all other countries, particularly in Arab countries. Nations that began Shaaban on February 21 will search for the crescent moon, which marks the start of the holy month, on March 21 but cannot see it because the moon will be full.
