In Saudi Arabia saw the new moon and deferred Ramadan

Dates are sold at a market ahead of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan in Cairo Egypt

Muslims observing Ramadan refrain from eating or drinking before dawn through dusk.

Although Ramadan is always on the same day of the Islamic calendar, the date on the Gregorian calendar varies from year to year, since the Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar and the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar.

Ramadan is the holiest month in the Muslim calendar, it is the month in which Prophet Mohammad started receiving revelations from God.

"Ramadan is a time of prayer and spiritual contemplation, and a chance to reflect on values like compassion, gratitude, and generosity". The announcement of the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan will be made shortly afterwards.

In a statement on Monday, the Mufti of Singapore, Mohamed Fatris Bakaram, wished all Muslims in Singapore a blessed Ramadan.

The moon-sighting committee met at Abu Dhabi Judicial Department after Maghrib prayers on Wednesday to look for the new crescent Moon and determine when the holy month would begin.

"Faith is a great gift and the free exercise of religion is a fundamental human right", said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director.

The president added that Ramadan "reminds us of the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life".

Announcing the timings of various services during the holy month, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said from Saturday to Wednesday, the Metro service will be operational on both the lines from 5am to 12am.
