AWAL RAMADHAN BRUNEI – MOON SIGHTING


The month of Ramadhan is a holy month for all Muslims. It is a month of fasting, abstaining from consuming food and drinks from dawn to dusk for the entire month. For this year 2009, Brunei Darussalam will begin fasting  on 22th of August.
BY CONSENT of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei, Muslims in the country will begin fasting on Saturday, as the Ramadhan moon could not be sighted at all four assigned places of the Sultanate yesterday evening.
