PESCHAR – For the sighting of the Ramadan moon, the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee is scheduled to convene today, Wednesday, March 22.
The central moon-sighting committee meeting will be presided over by Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad in the Auqaf Hall, and the zonal moon-sighting committee will also convene there.
The government has chosen to conduct the meeting in the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in yet another effort to foster harmony and agreement regarding the sighting of the Ramadan crescent.
The Ruet body has in the meantime invited members of the private committees to provide testimony. In order to reach an agreement and allow Muslims all around the nation to fast together and celebrate Eid on the same day, the administration adopted some novel actions.
However, due to the gloomy sky, the Pakistan Meteorological Department forecast that there will be fewer opportunities to see the moon today.
On Thursday, Ramadan will begin in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries.
In anticipation of seeing the crescent moon on Thursday, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar have declared they will observe Ramadan. The Islamic month of Shaban, which comes before Holy Month, will conclude on Wednesday, the KSA Supreme Court declared in the evening.
