On this day, the Moon sets nearly 2 minuets before the sun, which makes the crescent sighting not only difficult but impossible.

The New Moon will be in conjunction with the Sun @ 12:08 UTC+4, however based on the astronomical calculations and personal experience , the Crescent (Hilal) will NOT be visible across the country.

Therefore Shaa’ban will continue its 30 days

Ramadan will start on Sunday, 29th June 2014  InShaAllah (If God Wills)

Please note, Actual Ramadan starts after the Sunset on Saturday 28th  ..

(Not to get confused, The Arabic new day always starts after Sunset)
