The commencement of Ramadhan follows the sighting of a new moon that indicates the beginning of the new Islamic month. Sightings will be sourced from various locations subject to deliberation by the panel, thus ensuring a broad consensus. In the absence of a sighting, Ramadhan will commence the following day after completing 30 days for Sha'ban.
