Ramadan to begin on Friday in Middle East
Leading clerics in many Mid-East countries didn't spot a new moon on Wednesday, meaning that the four weeks of dawn-to-dusk fasting in the Muslim holy month of Ramadan will begin Friday, local news media reported.
Reports from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen and Egypt all said the Ramadan fast would begin at daybreak Friday. (Albawaba.com)
