Supreme Court Saudi Arabia has called on all Muslims to sight the Ramadan crescent on Thursday evening, April 23.
According to reports, the court urged all the citizens to look out for the crescent moon that marks beginning of the fasting month.
“Anyone who sights the moon through a telescope or the naked eye should inform the nearest court,” the court said.
If the moon is sighted on Thursday night, Sha’aban 30, then Friday will be the first day of the Holy month Ramadan.
Ramadan 2020 will be under worst circumstances as the whole globe is grappled with the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.
Moreover, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman approved the reduced Taraweeh prayers with continuing suspension of pilgrims in the two Holy mosques of Mecca and Medina.
Saudi authorities formed a comprehensive plan in order to cope with the pandemic crisis during the month of Ramadan.
