The holy month of Ramadan has started in Azerbaijan.

Axar.az reports that the Caucasus Muslims Office (CMO) has issued a fatwa in this regard. The CMO declared in the fatwa that according to the Shamakhy Astrophysical Observatory, named after Nasreddin Tusi of the National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan, the 1st of Ramadan coincides with March 23, 2023, according to the Gregorian calendar.

The first Night of Qadr in the month of Ramadan will be on the night of the 18th to the 19th of Ramadan, if exactly on April 9. The second night of Qadr will be on April 11, the third on April 13, and the last on April 17.

Report informs, fasting in Ramadan is obligatory for a person if he is accountable, able to fast, and settled. Quran says: "...and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night), then complete your Sawm (fast) till the nightfall”. (Al-Baqara. 187).

Notably, Eid al-Fitr will be celebrated on April 21 – the 1st day of the month of Shawwal with the appearance of a moonrise in our territory.

The month of Ramadan is that in which the Quran was revealed: guidance for mankind, clear proofs of the guidance, and the criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, a number of other days. Allah desires for you ease; He desires no hardship for you; and that you should complete the period, and that you should magnify Allah for having guided you, and that perhaps you may be thankful.
