Nigerian Muslims have been enjoined to look out for the new moon on Wednesday, 16th May to herald the month of Ramadan – the 9th month of the Islamic calendar in which Muslim faithful are expected to fast for 29 or 30 days.

In a statement made available to THE PRECISION and signed by the Deputy Secretary-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Prof. Salisu Shehu, the body under the
leadership of its President-General and Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence,
Alh. Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, felicitated the entire
Muslim in Nigeria on the auspicious occasion of the forthcoming Ramadan, 1439
A.H. 

“Following the advice of the National Moon Sighting Committee (NMSC),
the President-General enjoins the Nigerian Muslim Ummah to search for
the crescent of Ramadan 1439 AH immediately after sunset on Wednesday,
16th May, 2018 equivalent to 29th Sha’aban 1439 AH. If the crescent is
sighted by Muslims of impeccable character on the said evening, His
Eminence would declare Thursday, 17th May, 2017 as the first day of
Ramadan. 

“If, however, the crescent is not sighted that day,
then, Friday, 18th May, 2018 automatically becomes the first of Ramadan,
1439 AH,” the statement read in part.
The NSCIA also urged Muslims to await the announcement of the Sultan of Sokoto before the commencement of the fasting.
“The Council hereby enjoins the Muslims all over the
Country to be on the lookout for the announcement of His Eminence, the
President-General of NSCIA, on the commencement of the 1439 AH Ramadan
fast,” the statement read.
Below is the full text of the press statement of the NSCIA:
