According to astronomical calculations, Ramadan is expected to start on Thursday, March 23 in some Arab countries.

The International Astronomical Centre has confirmed that the crescent of Ramadan will be visible on Wednesday, March 22, and thus Thursday, March 23, will mark the beginning of the holy month in certain Arab nations.

The Emirates Astronomical Society has also predicted that Ramadan 2023 will begin on March 23, with Eid Al-Fitr falling on Friday, April 21.

“Ramadan this year will begin on Thursday, March 23 and will be for 29 days. Eid Al-Fitr will be on Friday, April 21,” Emirates Astronomical Society’s chairman Ibrahim Al Jarwan said.

However, in India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, the holy month is expected to commence on Friday, March 24, since the crescent of Ramadan will not be visible in these countries.

The holy month is significant for Muslims worldwide, as it is a time of fasting, prayer, and spiritual reflection. Muslims observe a strict fast from dawn until sunset during this month, abstaining from food, drink, and other physical desires.

They break their fast at sunset with a meal called iftar, and the month culminates in the celebration of Eid Al-Fitr.
