Ramadan 2021: Crescent moon not sighted in Saudi Arabia
The kingdom's moon sighting committee had met earlier today to spot the crescent with the naked eye.
The moon crescent, which would mark the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, was not spotted in Saudi Arabia on Sunday evening. Therefore, Monday, April 12, would be the last day of the month of Shaaban, and the holy month would begin from Tuesday, April 13.
The kingdom's moon sighting committee will meet again on Monday evening to confirm the sighting of the moon.
Earlier, the country’s Supreme Court had also urged all the Muslims in the country to sight the crescent of the holy month and report the sighting to the nearest court and register their testimony.
In the UAE, the moon-sighting committee, will meet virtually on Monday, April 12, after the Maghrib prayer.
As per astronomical calculations, the holy month is most likely to begin on Tuesday, April 13, in the UAE.
