Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have urged their citizens to look for the Ramadan moon on the evening of March 10. This suggests that these Arab countries might start fasting a day earlier than Pakistan, as is often the case.

Weather expert Jawad Memon mentioned that although the moon for Ramadan will be born on March 10, it won’t be visible until March 11.

During Ramadan, millions of Pakistanis and billions of Muslims worldwide fast from dawn till sunset, with fasting durations ranging from 12 to 17 hours depending on geographical location.
