Ramadan fasts will begin tomorrow only if the crescent moon gets sighted. If the moon remains invisible, then the Ramzan fasts will begin from Tuesday, May 7. The crescent moon also signals the beginning of Taraweeh prayers, the special namaz in which Quran is recited over 27 nights of the Islamic holy month.

Astronomical experts claim that the sighting of crescent moon today is doubtful in the eastern hemisphere of the world, as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), where attempts were made to sight the 29th crescent on Saturday, did not spot the moon.

As per precedent, the moon is sighted in Indian subcontinent region only a day after it has been spotted in the western hemisphere. Going by this probability, the chances of moon sighting in India, along with other parts of Asia, is bleak today.
