KUALA LUMPUR: Muslims in Malaysia will begin the Ramadan dawn-to-dusk fast on Thursday (March 23), says the Keeper of the Rulers' Seal.
Tan Sri Syed Danial Syed Ahmad said the starting date for the fasting period for states throughout Malaysia was set on the order of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah after being consented to by the Rulers.
The announcement was broadcast live on Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) tonight (March 22).
The Ramadan moon sighting took place in 29 locations across the country, including Pontian Kecil, Johor and the Falak Al-Khawarizmi Complex in Kampung Balik Batu, Tanjung Bidara, Melaka. - Bernama
