In Saudi Arabia saw the new moon and deferred Ramadan

Islamic scholars are firm that if the Ramadan moon is sighted in most parts of the Middle East today, then it would be viewed in Southeast Asia, South Asia and the Indian subcontinent tomorrow.

The UAE has yet to make a formal announcement and the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department urged the public to wait for an official announcement from the UAE's Moon-sighting committee before spreading rumours.

During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims endure a period of daily fasting - the biggest act of religious observance of its kind.

The Ramadan fasting will begin on Thursday across the globe, the official Saudi news agency SPA reported on Tuesday.

"Following the advice of the National Moon Sighting Committee (NMSC), the President-General enjoins the Nigerian Muslim Ummah to search for the crescent of Ramadan 1439 AH immediately after sunset on Wednesday 16th May, 2018 equivalent to 29th Sha'aban 1439 AH".
