Moon Sighting Ramadan 2018


Moon sighting. As the whole world knows that the holy month of Ramzan is about to start. All Muslims are ready with their preparation for the whole month of Ramadan.

As the preparations are done all things are set up. Now everyone is waiting for “Ramzan ka chand”.


The Crescent Moon!!

So in this post, we will talk about the Ramadan 2018 moon sighting. As this is the topic on which almost whole world is looking right now.

I have been receiving some questions from last week. The questions are Is Ramadan tomorrow? when is Ramadan 2018 in usa? When is Ramadan 2018 in Saudi arabia? When is Ramadan 2018 in India? When is Ramadan 2018 in Pakistan?

This shows that how much people are waiting for this moment in each country of the world.

So I have decided to cover this topic for all my friends in these countries.

So let’s start.

When is Ramadan 2018 in India?

All Muslims are keeping eye on the crescent moon on 16th May, Wednesday. By this, the holy month of Ramzan or Ramadan in India will begin. Depending on the moon sighting, the fasting ramzan month will begin from 17th May or 18th May.

According to the news, Muslims will try to see the moon on 16th May itself. Which is also considered as 29th Shaban. Moon sighting will end Shaban and start Ramadan from 17th May 2018. If the moon sighting does not take place on 16th may then Shaban will complete 30 days and ramadan will begin from  18th of May.

When is Ramadan 2018 in Saudi Arabia?

The holiest month of Islamic lunar calendar begins when Shaban month ends. Under Islamic calendar, a new month begins after a new moon sighting.

If the moon sighted on 15th May 2018 fasting for Ramzan in Saudi Arabia will begin from 16th May 2018. Which is on Wednesday. If the moon sighting does not take place on 15th May than Muslims will search the moon sighting on 16th May 2018 and the Ramadan will definitely start from 17th of May.


the first day of ramadan of the Hegira year 1439 will take place on 17th of May in Saudi Arabia. the observation of Crescent moon was not made on 15th of May in Saudi Arabia. so the arabie saoudite ramadan 2018 will be on 17th May.

When is Ramadan 2018 in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and South Asia?

Note that if the crescent moon is seen in Saudi Arabia on 15th May then it is expected that the crescent moon will be seen in Asian subcontinent on 16th May 2018.

The geography of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and South Asia states that the crescent moon will be visible on 16th May 2018.

When is Ramadan 2018 in USA, UK, and Europe?

Muslim friends in the United States, United Kingdom, and another European country will follow Saudi Arabia moon reports.

so the Ramadan in Unites States (USA) will begin on Wednesday that is the 16th of May. 

When is Ramadan 2018?

The first day of Ramadan is expected on 16th May 2018 according to the astronomical charts. As Islamic days goes from sunset to sunset so for the Muslim actual Ramadan will begin prior to the day before 16th May that is 15th May. But it all depends on the crescent moon.
