The new Crescent moon of the month of Ramadan has not been sighted in Sri Lanka yesterday evening (22), according to the Colombo Grand Mosque.

Hence, the Muslims in Sri Lanka will begin the month of Ramadan fasting from dawn on Friday (March 24), the Colombo Grand Mosque said.

Muslims all over the world will observe a month of fasting and prayers during Ramadan to commemorate the time when the Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammed on the night of “Laylat Al Qadr”.
