Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court calls on all to look for crescent moon signalling Ramadan

DUBAI: Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court called on all Muslims to look for the crescent moon signalling the start of Ramadan on Tuesday and to inform the nearest court of those who see it with the naked eye or through the binoculars, Saudi state-news agency SPA reported.
The statement was issued by the supreme court on Sunday, with the month of Ramadan expected to begin on Tuesday and continue until June 14th during which Muslims around the world will practice fasting from dawn until dusk.
