Muslims in North America will welcome the holy fasting month of Ramadan on Saturday, May 27, according to astronomical calculations.

“[The] first day of Ramadan 1438 is on Saturday, May 27, 2017,” reads a statement from the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) obtained by AboutIslam.net.

The Muslim body said the Ramadan moon will be born on May 25.

“The Astronomical New Moon is on Thursday, May 25, 2017, at 19:46 Universal Time,” FQNA statement added.

“On May 25 there is no place on earth where at sunset the elongation is 8 degrees and moon is 5 degrees above the sun. Therefore, Ramadan cannot start the next day.”

Quoting FCNA, the umbrella Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) also confirmed the beginning of Ramadan on May 27, sharing FQNA statement published on the association’s website.

Earlier this month, ISNA launched “Greening our Ramadan” campaign to encourage mosques and Islamic centers in the US to make their Ramadan more environmentally friendly...


Think Win-Win for a better world for all...
