The Qatar Calendar House (QCH) has announced that according to the calculations by its astronomers the crescent of the holy month of Ramadan for 1441 AH will be born next Thursday, at 5:27am Doha local time (2:27 GMT).
Dr Bashir Marzouq, an expert astronomer at the QCH, said that it is impossible to see or monitor the Ramadan crescent on Wednesday evening with the naked eye or astronomical devices in the skies of Qatar and all the countries of the Arab and Islamic region, because this year the crescent will not be born at sunset on the monitoring day.
The legal decision of the advent of Ramadan remains within the competence of the Moon Sighting Committee of the Ministry of Awqaf (Endowments) and Islamic Affairs in Qatar.
He added that the moonset in Qatar on Wednesday will be at 5:30pm, while the sun will set at 6:1pm
