In accordance with the Supreme Court’s call, anyone who spots the Ramadan crescent moon with the naked eye or binoculars is requested to notify the nearest court to record their testimony or to contact the nearest center for assistance in getting to the nearest court.

This is a crucial step in the process of determining the official start of Ramadan and ensuring that the Muslim community is unified in their observance of this holy month.

The court relies on these testimonies to verify the sighting of the crescent moon and to make an official announcement on the start of Ramadan.
