Qatar Calendar House (QCH) said Saturday that, based on astronomical calculations, Thursday, March 23 will be the first day of Ramadan as Wednesday, March 22 will be the last day of the month of Shaban 1444 AH.
The Crescent Sighting Committee at the Ministry of Endowments (Awqaf) and Islamic Affairs is the authority to declare the start of the blessed month of Ramadan in Qatar.
Eng. Faisal Al-Ansari, Executive Director of Sheikh Abdullah Al-Ansari Complex, said: The crescent of the blessed month of Ramadan for this year will be born on the evening of Tuesday, March 21, at 8:24 pm Doha local time (5:24 pm UTC).
Engineer Faisal Al-Ansari added: "It is impossible to see the crescent of the blessed month of Ramadan for the year 1444 AH on the evening of the investigation day (Tuesday, March 21, 2023 AD) in the sky of the State of Qatar, and most of the Arab and Islamic countries, because the crescent will not have been born at sunset on that day."
