The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, home of the holiest shrines in Islam in Mecca and Madinah, has announced that the fasting month of Ramadan will start on Monday (Mar 11).
The decision was taken after the crescent moon was sighted on Sunday evening, reports Arab News.
The daytime fasting month of Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam.
Observant Muslims refrain from eating and drinking from dawn to dusk and traditionally gather with family and friends to break their fast in the evening.
Fasting is strictly observed in Saudi Arabia, with restaurants closed until sunset for iftar meals.
It is also a time of prayers, with the faithful converging in large numbers at mosques, especially at night.
Ramadan, the holiest Muslim month, begins on a certain date determined by lunar calculations and physical observations.
