The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), led by its President-General and Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has encouraged Muslims in Nigeria to watch for the crescent of Sha’aban 1445AH after sunset on Saturday, 29th Rajab, 1445AH (February 10, 2024), in preparation for this year’s Ramadan fasting.

Prof Salisu Shehu, Deputy Secretary-General of the NSCIA disclosed this in a statement on Friday.

Prof. Shehu emphasized that it was important to note that the moon appears and can be sighted usually long (even bearing other environmental factors) after the conjunction has taken place.
