Based on astronomical calculations, the holy month of Ramadan is expected to start on Monday, May 6, 2019, according to Arabia Weather.

Astronomers calculate that Ramadan's new moon will be born on May 6 and Muslims will be fasting for 29 days this year, meaning that the last day of Ramadan will be on Monday, June 3, 2019.

Accordingly, the new crescent Moon of Shawwal is expected to be seen on Monday evening so that the first day of Eid Al Fitr will be on Tuesday, June 4, 2019.

The holy month of Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar and starts with seeing the crescent moon of Ramadan and ends with seeing the crescent moon of Shawwal (Hilal of Eid Al Fitr).
