BREAKING: #Sultan Says #Ramadan2023 Begins Thursday



BREAKING: #Sultan Says #Ramadan2023 Begins Thursday—Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, president of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), says the crescent for the commencement of the Ramadan fasting has been sighted.

In a broadcast on Wednesday night, Abubakar said Muslims in the country should commence fasting on Thursday, March 23.

The sultan of Sokoto said the announcement follows reports of moonsighting received from Islamic scholars and organisations from across the country.

He said the reports were duly “authenticated and verified” by the states and national moonsighting committees.

“Consequently, tomorrow Thursday the 23rd day of  March 2023 becomes the first day of Ramadan 1444 after Hijra,” Sultan said.

“We, therefore, call on all Muslims to commence fasting accordingly. As we just concluded the 2023 general elections and leaders emerge at the national and state levels by Allah’s will, we, therefore, call on all Muslims to use this holy month to pray in guiding the affairs of our great country.

“We appeal to the well-meaning individuals amongst us to assist the vulnerable and the poor people with food during this holy month of Ramadan to ease the hardship people are going through. May Allah reward us for our ibadahwith Jannatul Firdaus, Ameen.”
