The committee, comprised of religious scholars and government officials, met in Karachi to assess witness testimonies from across the country. News outlets provided live coverage of the event [YouTube “LIVE Ramadan Moon Sighting in Pakistan”].

This announcement comes a day after some Gulf states, including Saudi Arabia, declared the start of Ramadan based on their own moon sighting committees. While East Asian and Oceanic nations await their own sightings, Pakistanis can now prepare for the holy month.

This year’s Ramadan is expected to be a vibrant occasion, following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions. Mosques are anticipating larger congregations for Taraweeh prayers, and bazaars will likely be bustling with activity as families stock up on essentials for pre-dawn meals (Suhoor) and evening meals (Iftar).

Charity organizations are gearing up for increased donations, as acts of generosity are highly encouraged during Ramadan. The spirit of community and togetherness is a hallmark of the holy month in Pakistan.

However, rising food prices remain a concern for some families. The government has assured citizens of measures to ensure essential food items are readily available throughout Ramadan.

Overall, Pakistanis are looking forward to a spiritually enriching and celebratory Ramadan in 2024.
