Grand Mufti calls for sighting Ramadan crescent moon Sunday

Amman, The Grand Mufti of Jordan, Mohammad Khalaileh, urged public to observe the Ramadan crescent moon next Sunday, May 5, 2019, corresponding to Shaban 29, 1440 Hijri.

The Mufti also called upon citizens throughout the Kingdom to testify in case of seeing the crescent as the Ifta’a offices will be opened across the Kingdom.

Spotting the crescent moon on the last night of Shaaban (the eighth month of the Islamic lunar calendar) is the only way to determine the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan.
