2nd April is the First Day of the Holy Ramadan2022, iiQ8 info

ABU DHABI: The International Astronomical Center (IAC) has announced that the first day of the Holy Month of Ramadan will fall on 2nd April in most Muslim countries.

Eng. Mohammed Shawkat Odeh, Director of the IAC, said the month of Shaaban started on 4th March, 2022, in most Muslim countries and most of them will monitor the crescent of the Holy Month of Ramadan on 29th Shaaban 1443 hijri year, corresponding to 1st April.

Seeing the crescent on Friday, 1st April, is not possible with the naked eye from anywhere in the Islamic world. It can be viewed only with the help of a telescope, but with great difficulty from parts of the west of the African continent. The crescent can be seen on that day with the naked eye with some difficulty in some parts of the Americas, he added.

It is possible to see the crescent with a telescope from parts of the Islamic world on Friday. Due to the occurrence of the conjunction before sunset and the setting of the moon after sunset in all regions of the Islamic world, it is customary under such circumstances for most Islamic countries to announce the start of the Holy Month of Ramadan the next day, which will be Saturday, 2nd April, for 30 days, he further added.

The first day of the holy month of Ramadan2022 will be on Saturday, April 2nd, Al-Ojiri Scientific Center announced.

The center said that according to the astronomical calculations based on the geographical location of the country, 2nd April 2022 Saturday will be the first day of Ramadan for the year 1443 AH and the ninth month of the Hijri year.
