Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court has issued a call to all Muslims in the kingdom to investigate the vision of the crescent for the month of Ramadan on the evening of March 21, 2023, according to the Umm Al-Qura calendar. In a statement, the Supreme Court requested that those who see the crescent with the naked eye or through binoculars should inform the nearest court and record their testimony, or contact the nearest center to help them reach the nearest court.
The Supreme Court also urged those who have the ability to take an interest in this matter and join the committees formed in the regions for this purpose. It encouraged participation and said that there will be a reward for cooperation on righteousness and piety, which will benefit all Muslims.
This call is significant as it marks the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, which is considered one of the holiest months in the Islamic calendar. During Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and engage in spiritual reflection, prayer, and charitable giving. The sighting of the crescent moon marks the beginning of the month and is a significant event for Muslims all over the world.
