The committee met on Tuesday evening, and weren't able to see the crescent moon, so Ramadan will begin on Thursday, with Taraweeh prayers commencing on Wednesday, May 16.

Bad weather and dust made observation hard, according to the TV channel. In the United States, for example, while some Muslims follow astronomical calculations and the predictions of the Islamic Society of North America, many others prefer to start Ramadan on the same day as Saudi Arabia.

The holy period is expected to run until into mid-June.

The sighting of the new moon was carried out at 29 locations throughout the country.

Though in some countries a lack of moon-sighting has bumped the start of Ramadan to Thursday, the USA and Europe begin observing the month at sundown tonight.

The soon-to-be mommy must have realized all of the drama was too much, because soon after, she deleted her Instagram account. She responded: "You're illiterate, you're baby mama 4/5 to [a] man who has women crawling out of the woodworks with kids".

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.

According to the holy book of Muslims, The Qur'an was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad during Ramadan. Aside from fasting, the holy month of Ramadan is a month of self-reflection, sharing, caring and giving. Umrah is known as the lesser Hajj, a pilgrimage that can be undertaken at any time of the year.

The Sultan also urged them to pray for the nation and maximise the benefits and blessings of the holy month.

How do you wish someone happy Ramadan?

At the end of the 29 or 30 days of fasting, Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr which literally means "festival of breaking the fast" in Arabic.
