The Ramadan 1439 Hijriyah (AH) is marked with lunar conjunction on Tuesday, 15 May 2018 at 11:47 UT. It falls into Islamic Lunation Number: 17,256.
At the evening of that Tuesday, theÂ hilaal or young crescent moon of Ramadan would be impossible to be seen by naked eyes from almost every place on the globe. On the next evening, however, theÂ hilaal will be easily visible from most part of the world. Therefore, based onÂ global moon sighting possibility, 1 Ramadan 1439 AH will start on Thursday, 17 May 2018.
