The ministry said that it has contacted its delegates and the Royal Armed Forces units which confirmed the non-sighting of the lunar crescent announcing the beginning of the month of Rabi I in the evening of Monday October 28.
The month of Safar, the second month in the Islamic year, will complete 30 days and the first day of Rabi I will be Wednesday, October 30.
