The Ra­madan fast con­tin­ues to­day as the new moon (of Shawwal) was not sighted yes­ter­day.

A state­ment signed by the chair­man, Ad­vi­sory Committee on Re­li­gious Af­fairs to the Sul­tanate Coun­cil, Pro­fes­sor Sambo Ju­naidu Sokoto, said the committee had not re­ceived any news about the new moon, mean­ing the month of Ra­madan would com­plete a 30-day cir­cle.

"With this de­vel­op­ment, Mus­lims are ex­pected to fast to­mor­row (to­day) while Sal­lah will be next to­mor­row (Wed­nes­day July 6), which is equiv­a­lent to 1st Shawwal, 1437 AH," it said.

The state­ment added that the Sul­tan of Sokoto, Muham­mad Sa'ad Abubakar, who ap­proved the re­port, prayed Al­lah to ac­cept all good deeds in this Holy month.
