During the month of Ramadan, Muslims are directed to boost their level of spiritual and physical subordination to God by observing fasts. The fast requires one to avoid sinning along with abstaining oneself from some halal things for a specific time. That is to say, Muslims should abstain from dining, drinking, smoking, and husband-wife intimacy from the time of dawn until the setting of the sun.

According to the lunar calendar, Ramadan 2023 will probably fall on Thursday, March 23, 2023, in Pakistan. The dates will be verified as we shift nearer to Ramadan.

However, the convention proclamations show that the specific date of the sacred month’s outset must be defined by a moon-sighting council consisting of religious intellectuals, astronomers, and other administrations under the cover of night.

During this holy month of Ramadan, people in all parts of the country turn into municipalities that hardly sleep. The people go out and about after the Maghrib prayers. Everything in the land rearranges itself in the month of Ramadan, enclosing the cafeterias, most of which merely open at the outset and the end of each fast for sehri and iftar.

Moon Sighting in Pakistan

The moon sighting committee in Pakistan is officially known as the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee and is responsible for announcing the sighting of the new moon. The committee usually meets at least two days before the start of a new month to decide whether the moon has been sighted or not.

If the moon is sighted, the committee makes an announcement and the new month begins. If the moon is not sighted, then the current month is extended by one day and the committee meets again the next day to look for the new moon.

Ist day of Ramadan 2023

In 2023, Ramadan is expected to begin on March 23. However, official announcements will be made once the moon is sighted.

LAYL-TUL-QADAR in Ramzan 2023

Allah Almighty has blessed us with plenty of things that we need. We can not count or even remember HIS  blessings. Whatever HE has given us, makes our lives worth living and full of peace. Among other blessings of Allah is a “Night Of Blessings” named ليلة القدر. We need to look for it in the last 10 odd-number nights of Ramadan.

The importance of this night LAYL-TUL-QADAR in Ramadan

 Allah has sent prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم to counsel humankind towards the right direction. All the declarations of Allah are present in our Holy Book” Al-Quran” This book was disclosed to the prophet on the night of Qader as mentioned in surah Al-Qader:(sura number 97)

“Undoubtedly, We sent it down in the blessed and valuable night.

And what do you know, what the blessed night is?

The blessed and valuable Night is better than a thousand months.”

No one knows when he is going to breathe his last. So, to attain the maximum quantity of blessings in the minimum time, we should avail this chance.
