According to Aletihad, the crescent Moon could not be sighted in several regions in the kingdom, including Sudair and Shukra, meaning Wednesday will be the 30th day of Shaaban and the first day of Ramadan will fall on Thursday.

Noting that Ramadan reminds of the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life, Trump said Americans are blessed to live under a Constitution that fosters religious liberty and respects religious practice. Where the new moon (that of Ramadan) is sighted on the 29th of Sha'baan (May 15), Muslims are expected to commence fasting the next day.

The end of Ramadan will take place in the middle of next month after the month-long fasting period in the Islam tradition.

Ramadan 2018 will begin in Saudi Arabia on Thursday, it has been announced.

He graduated from Washington and Lee University in 1951 and later received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 1957. While the stories have no connecting theme, this is the first book that gave early examples of New Journalism.

US President Donald Trump today greeted Muslims observing Ramadan and said the holy month is a time of self-reflection meant to deepen one's spiritual growth.

Mass prisoner pardons have become a common practice by rulers in the Gulf Cooperation Council at the start of the holy month, which is meant to be a time of generosity and charitable giving.

On the day of Eid, there is a very particular Islamic prayer - or salat - that consists of two rakats - units - which usually takes place in an open field or large hall.

Fasting is meant to bring Muslims closer to God and remind them of those less fortunate.
