Holy Ramadan, the lunar month of self-purification through fasting and abstinence, begins tomorrow as the moon was not sighted anywhere in the country yesterday.
Lailatul Qadr, the night of divine blessings and benediction, will be observed on the night of July 25.
The decision was made at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee last evening after reviewing reports on moon sighting for the month of Ramadan of 1435 Hijri.
Religious Affairs Minister and Chairman of the committee Motiur Rahman chaired the meeting at the Islamic Foundation's Baitul Mukarram office.
Religious Affairs Secretary Chowdhury M Babul Hasan, Director General of the Islamic Foundation Shamim Mohammad Afzal and Baitul Mukarram National Mosque Khatib Maulana M Salauddin were present, among others.
