Moon not sighted, Ramadan begins Friday

The Holy Ramadan, the lunar month of self-purification through fasting and abstinence, will begin in the country on Friday as the new moon was not sighted anywhere in Bangladesh sky today (March 22).

The National Moon Sighting Committee took the decision at a meeting held at Islamic Foundation's Baitul Mukarram office with State Minister for Religious Affairs and committee Chairman Md Faridul Haque Khan in the chair.

Muslims are meant to fast from dawn to dusk during the lunar month, a time of restraint and austerity.

During the holy month, all government, semi-government, autonomous and semi-autonomous institutions will follow new office timing as announced by the government.
