RIYADH: Monday will mark the first day of Ramadan in Saudi Arabia, the Supreme Court announced on Sunday evening.

The crescent moon was sighted on Sunday evening in Sudair and Al-Hariq. 

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar during which Muslims fast from dawn to sunset, abstaining from food and drink.

The holy month is a period of introspection and community, when Muslims read the Qur’an more than usual, perform taraweeh prayers, and increase their good deeds including charitable giving.
