In an official announcement today, Saudi authorities confirmed that the holy month of Ramadan is set to commence on Monday, March 11, 2024, marking the beginning of a sacred period for Muslims around the world.

The High Judicial Court of Saudi Arabia, responsible for determining the start of Islamic months based on the lunar calendar, declared the sighting of the new moon, signaling the arrival of Ramadan. This announcement comes after religious scholars and astronomers conducted careful observations to ascertain the crescent moon’s visibility.

Ramadan is a month of fasting, prayer, reflection, and community for Muslims globally. It is a time for spiritual growth, self-discipline, and increased acts of charity. Families and communities come together to break their fasts each evening with iftar, the meal that ends the daily fast, and engage in additional prayers and special acts of worship throughout the month.

Authorities in Saudi Arabia have urged citizens and residents to observe health and safety guidelines during Ramadan, considering the ongoing global health situation. Mosques and community centers are expected to organize various events and activities to foster a sense of unity and religious devotion.

As the crescent moon graces the night sky, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia joins Muslims worldwide in welcoming the blessed month of Ramadan, a time for reflection, gratitude, and spiritual rejuvenation.
