The Meteorological Department of Pakistan has said that the month of Ramazan is to commence from the 25th of April in the country, which means that the chances are that the Ramazan moon would be sighted on the April 24.
The Met Office further said that the moon would be 5 degrees on the horizon on the 23rd of April, owing to which it would be impossible to see it with the naked eyes. However, the moon would be visible the next day.
The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee has called a meeting on the 23rd of April for announcing whether it has gotten any confirmations by people of seeing the new moon.
The Met Office has forwarded its press release to the Ministry of Religious Affairs and the director of the Research and Reference Division.
The holy month of Ramazan is celebrated across Muslim countries with great enthusiasm and spirit. It is that time of the year when every Muslim strives to do good deeds for gaining the acceptance of Allah Almighty.
The month itself is divided into 3 parts, with each part comprising of 10 days, being referred to as the Ashra. The first Ashra is of blessings, then of forgiveness and the last one is to seek Allah Almighty’s protection from the punishments of hell fire.
May He make us among those who live to see this holy month and may we be among the ones who would try making most of this Ramazan.
