UAE’s moon-sighting committee to meet today to determine start of Ramadan


- Advertisment -

To determine the first day of Ramadan, the moon-sighting committee will meet virtually tonight, April 12, after the Maghrib prayer. 

During the meeting, the Sharia courts nationwide will follow up and inform the committee of any sightings, while the Lunar Calendar Committee at the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department will look for evidence and inform the moon-sighting committee of the findings. 

The moon-sighting committee is composed of a group of astronomers, court officials, and advisers from the country’s Islamic authority. They meet after the Maghrib prayer to look for the new crescent moon. 

If the committee sees it, Ramadan begins the following day. If not, Sha’ban will last 30 days and Ramadan will begin thereafter.
