Bad weather and dust made observation hard, according to the TV channel. Ramadan is the ninth month on the Islamic calender known as the Hijri calendar.

Islamic months can be 29 or 30 days based on the appearance of the moon crescent at night.

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.

Ramadan begins a day earlier in other parts of the world, depending on when a new moon is seen.

Non-Muslims visiting Islamic nations during Ramadan are not required to fast, but they are expected to refrain from eating and drinking in public spaces out of respect.


Determining the first day of Ramadan always creates confusion among Muslims immigrants living in foreign countries, especially in Europe and the United States.

Aside from fasting, the holy month of Ramadan is a month of self-reflection, sharing, caring and giving.

The date is also recognised as one of the Five Pillars of Islam, alongside faith, prayer, charity, and making a pilgrimage to the Holy City of Mecca.

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.

Note that on the last day of Ramadan, which is Eid al-fitr, the greeting changes to "Eid Mubarak".
