The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has provided some uplifting information for the people of Karachi during the holy month of Ramadan, which is a time when Muslims all over the world participate in acts of prayer and fast food and drink. As Pakistan readies itself for the celebrations and prayers that will take place during the holy month of Ramadan, it is expected that the weather during the first 10 Days of Ramadan will be cloudy.
The forecaster had indicated that there was a good possibility that the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan would occur on March 23; hence, it was anticipated that the first fast would be held on Thursday.
On the other hand, PMD advised that the sky should continue to be cloudless so that one could see the moon more clearly.
The meeting for the Ramadan moonsighting was set to take place on March 22, according to an announcement made by the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony.
The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Chairman Moulana Syed Abdul Khabir Azad will preside over the meeting that will take place after the Asr prayer in the city of Peshawar in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The meeting will take place at the Provincial Auqaf Department.
In the meantime, the weatherman has stated that there is a chance that it will continue to rain in certain parts of Karachi until March 20, and he has also mentioned that there has been more precipitation across the country when compared to the previous two or three years.
However, he also mentioned that it is possible that Pakistan will experience fewer showers this year in comparison to 2022. Indeed, the weather during the first 10 Days of Ramadan is a treat for all the people fasting during Ramadan.
