This is the picture of the crescent of Ramadan sighted in the Polynesian Islands in the Pacific Ocean, on Monday, July 8th at 6:08 PM, local time. As we share the night with these islands, it was proper for Muslims living in North America to fast on Tuesday, July 9th. Historically, whenever the moon sighting report had arrived before Fajr, i.e. Suhoor time, the Muslim communities had been required to observe fasting on that day. Sacred time of Ramadan starts with the arrival of the new moon. The knowledge of the beginning of the month of Ramadan obligates fasting of Ramadan.
