CMO issued fatwa about beginning of Ramadan month

Caucasian Muslims Office (CMO) has issued fatwa over the beginning of Ramadan month, ONA reports.

In accordance with the fatwa, Ramadan begins on May 6 on the Gregorian calendar in Azerbaijan.

According to the calculations conducted by the Shamakhi-based Tusi Astrophysical Observatory of the Azerbaijani Academy of Sciences (ANAS), the 1st of Ramadan—that is, when the moon appears—will fall on May 6 this year. From the moment the moon appears, the month of Ramadan begins.

On the night of May 5 to 6 is the evening of intent (An-Niyyah).  

Eid ul-Fitr holiday will be celebrated on August 5-6.
