The Egyptian National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics has forecast that Ramadan will begin on April 2, 2022.
On Friday, April 1, Ramadan’s crescent moon will be visible, which corresponds to the 29th of Shaban, the Islamic month. Astronomers predict that April 2 will be the first day of Ramadan.
It will be possible to see the moon at sunset on April 1, when the fasting will begin on Saturday.
During Ramadan, which is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset across the globe.
Eid Al Fitr, the start of Shawwal month, occurs at the end of Ramadan when the new moon is sighted.
According to the moon-sighting committee in each country, Ramadan and Eid al Fitr will start on their official dates.
