A meeting of Central Ruet-e-Hilal committee for sighting of Ramazan moon is underway in Karachi. There are fair chances of moon sighting today.
In Saudi Arabia, Ramazan crescent was not sighted yesterday; therefore, it is expected that the holy month will begin in Pakistan and Gulf countries on a same day on Thursday.
The prayers of Taraweeh are also likely to be held tonight both in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, where authorities will meet today for moon sighting.
In Canada and the US, Muslims will have their first fasting day today.
In Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Australia, Japan and Oman, Ramazan will begin tomorrow.
