All Muslims are encouraged to give notice to the crescent moon's sighting, which marks the start of Ramadan, according to the Crescent Sighting Committee in Qatar, which is under the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs. This call to action is set for Sunday evening, March 10, 2024, which falls on the 29th day of Shaban in the 1445 AH year.

If you are lucky enough to see the crescent moon, you should go to the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs building in the Dafna Towers neighborhood, which houses the committee's headquarters. This location is where they may testify to the sighting. After the sunset prayer, the committee will meet right away to go over the testimonials that have been gathered.

Ramadan holds profound significance in the Islamic calendar, serving as a month of profound spiritual devotion observed by millions of Muslims worldwide through fasting, prayer, and acts of charity.Positioned as the ninth month in the Islamic lunar calendar, Ramadan's commencement varies slightly each year due to the lunar cycle. With the Islamic year comprising 12 months and spanning either 354 or 355 days, the corresponding date of Ramadan shifts annually.

Officially, Ramadan in 2024 will not begin until the moon-sighting commission certifies that the crescent moon was seen, a requirement for the start of this holy month. The significance of community involvement in the observance of religious customs and rites is emphasized by this declaration. By actively participating in the crescent sighting rite, Muslims in Qatar demonstrate their steadfast adherence to their religion and support the community's overall spiritual development.
