the Islamic holy month in which Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, will begin on August 1 according to astronomical calculations, said Kuwaiti researcher Adel al-Sadoon.
He added that the moon will be coupled with the sun on July 30 at 9:40pm, and that the moon will not be watched in that night.
He said on July 31 the moon will be missed 19 minutes after sunset, and the age of the moon will be 21 hours. He added that the moon’s height off the horizon will be four degrees, and the percentage of its illumination will only be one percent.
Al-Sadoon said the crescent will not be seen in Kuwait in July 31, which it will appear in Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries.
He added that Ramadan will start on Monday, August 1.
