The Moon will Not be Visible in Kuwait

The Al-Ujairi Scientific Center announced that the crescent moon marking the start of Ramadan won’t be visible in Kuwait this year. Ramadan will occur during the spring season, but for the next nine years, it will coincide with winter. Astronomical calculations show that Ramadan will shift back to winter next year and then coincide with the days of Al-Murabbaniyya in four other years starting from 2028.

During this period, the weather will be moderate and cold until 2034. Ramadan starting in winter brings different conditions, including longer nights compared to daylight hours, resulting in shorter fasting periods compared to those experienced during summer months.

The year 1445 AH – 2024 AD marks the last Ramadan in the spring season, and it will return to this season again after 27 years.

Regarding the sighting of the Ramadan crescent in Kuwait, the center stated it would be impossible to see it based on specific criteria related to its position in the sky, height, declination, and other factors.

This year, fasting hours will last for 13 hours and 10 minutes, with the dawn call to prayer at precisely 44 minutes past midnight, decreasing by one minute each day. The Maghrib call to prayer will be at exactly 5 minutes past 5:00 in the evening.
