Muslims in North America will welcome the holy fasting month of Ramadan on Wednesday, May 16, according to astronomical calculations.

“Therefore the first day of Ramadan 1439 is on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, insha’Allah. First Tarawih prayer will be on Tuesday night,” 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 15.

“The Astronomical New Moon is on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, at 11:47 Universal Time,” FQNA statement added.

“On that day, somewhere in the Pacific Ocean at sunset, the elongation is 8 degrees and moon is 5 degrees above the sun.”

Quoting FCNA, the umbrella Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) also confirmed the beginning of Ramadan on May 16, sharing FQNA statement published on the association’s website.

Ramadan is the holiest month in Islamic calendar...
