The legal decision to enter the blessed month of Ramadan for this year remains the prerogative of the Crescent Investigation Committee at the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs in the State of Qatar. Eng. Faisal Al-Ansari (Executive Director of Sheikh Abdullah Al-Ansari Complex) stated that the crescent of the blessed month of Ramadan for this year will be born on Tuesday evening, corresponding to the 21st of this month, at 8:24 pm (5:24 pm UTC). Engineer Al-Ansari added that it is impossible to see the crescent of the month of Ramadan on the evening of the investigation day, Tuesday, March 21, in the sky of the State of Qatar and most of the Arab and Islamic countries. Because the crescent will not have been born at sunset on that day.
