Ramadan 2022: Sultan directs Muslims to look out for new moon tomorrow


Muhammad Abubakar, Sultan of Sokoto, has asked Muslims to look out for the new moon — signalling the beginning of Ramadan — on Friday.

The sultan said this in a statement issued on Thursday by Zubairu Usman-Ugwu, director of administration, Nigerian Supreme Council For Islamic Affairs.

Ramadan is a time for reflection when Muslims around the world observe fasting for 29 or 30 days.

According to the statement, if the moon is not sighted on Friday, the fast will begin on Sunday.
