Ramadan 2024 moon sighting: Ramadan is considered the holiest month in Islam. The day holds immense significance as it is believed that the Quran was unveiled during this holy month, which is also known as Ramzan. It is the ninth month in the Muslim Lunar Calendar and is considered to be the most significant time according to Islamic culture.

During the month, Muslims observe obligatory fasting — one of the five pillars of the Islamic faith — known as ‘Roza’. The fast begins with daybreak with sehri, and as the sun sets each day, the fast is broken, with a meal known as iftar, which becomes a moment of celebration and delicious food.
