Oman declares 17 May 1 Ramadhan

The Moon Sighting Committee of the Oman Ministry of Awqaf and Religious Affairs has announced that Ramadhan moon will be sighted via astronomical calculations such that 17 May 2018 will be the first day of the month.

The committee had previously relied on a physical sighting of the moon on the potential eve of Ramadhan to determine the start of the month.
