Ramadan ends Wednesday, Sallah is Thursday – NSCIA


The Nigeria Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has declared that the Ramadan fast will continue on Wednesday while the Eid-el-Fitr will be on Thursday.

The NSCIA, headed by the Sultan of Sokoto, Saad Abubakar, said this in a statement Tuesday evening.

After there was no positive sighting of a new crescent Tuesday, the Ramadan fasting continues tomorrow, the council said in a tweet.

The Eid-ul-fitr festival marks the end of Muslim fasting month, Ramadan, the ninth month of the lunar calendar where Muslims abstain from food, drink and sexual pleasure from dawn to dusk.
