In Saudi Arabia, Ramzan will begin on Thursday as the crescent was not sighted on Tuesday evening.

In other middle east countries including the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Ramzan will begin on Thursday.

The date for the beginning of the fasting month is determined by both lunar calculations and the sighting of the new moon. Muslims follow a lunar calendar consisting of 12 months in a year of 354 or 355 days. The sighting of a crescent heralds the beginning of Ramzan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.

Ramzan is observed by more than 1.8 billion Muslims worldwide. Fasting during the holy month is one of the five pillars of Islam and is obligatory for all healthy Muslims. However, young children, sick people, travellers and women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or menstruating are exempt.

Hyderabad is one of the major cities where Ruet-e-Hilal committee organises a meeting of its members to determine and announce the sighting of the moon.
