Weather of Arabia - On Tuesday, most Arab countries announced the results of the investigation of the crescent of the blessed month of Ramadan for the year 1444/2023, while 5 Arab countries are investigating the crescent of the month of Ramadan today, Wednesday, so what is the reason for this disagreement over the date of the investigation of the crescent of the month of Ramadan?
The legal criterion for examining the crescent is the legal sighting, so the reason for the disagreement over the date of investigating the crescent of the month of Ramadan among the Arab countries goes back to the date on which the month of Sha`ban began in them, and the following are the details:
It should be noted that astronomers indicated that the crescent of the month of Sha’ban could not be seen on Monday (February 20) with the naked eye or the telescope because of its young age, its meager illumination, and its short stay above the horizon, but astronomically it was present, so we cannot consider that there was an error at the beginning of the month of Sha’ban in any of the States, where the concerned committees worked hard to make the decision, and God knows best.
