Tehran (IP) - Headquarters for Sighting the New Moon of the office of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei said that sightings indicate Thursday, March 23, 2023, would be the first day of the holy month of Ramadan.

Iran PressIran News: After sighting the crescent moon, the office of Iran's Leader Ayatollah Khamenei announced Thursday, March 23, as the start of Muslims' the holy month of Ramadan.

The advent of Ramadan may vary from country to country depending on the situation of the moon.

Since the new moon is not in the same state at the same time globally, the beginning and ending dates of Ramadan depend on what lunar sightings are received in each location.

As a result, Ramadan dates vary in different countries, but usually only by a day.

This is due to the cycle of the moon.
