Ramadan in Kuwait likely to fall on May 17
The holy month of Ramadan is expected to fall on May 17, coinciding with a Thursday, said Kuwaiti astronomer Adel Al-Saadoun said Sunday.
He noted that the crescent might not be visible in Kuwait and could only be seen through telescope, while the inhabitants of the Arab Maghreb (western Arab world) will be able to see the crescent clearly.
Muslims observe fasting in Ramadan from dawn to dusk, in line with the Islamic doctrine. Eating, drinking or smoking at public places is prohibited by law.
