The birth of the crescent is known as the moment when it crosses the line of conjunction, or the meeting, and the line of conjunction is the link between the center of the sun, the moon and the earth.

The birth of the crescent is known as the moment when it crosses the line of association, or the meeting, and the line of association is the link between the center of the sun, the moon and the earth, where their meeting in a line is a prelude to the birth of the crescent.

The question of seeing the crescent comes after its birth, and this depends on the period of its stay in the sky, and sighting is possible after the crescent moves away from the line of conjunction a distance estimated by calculations in 8 degrees, and this is on the condition that it stays in the sky for a period after sunset until the evening light dims, preventing sighting of the crescent.

A statement from the United Arab Emirates International Center for Astronomy issued today says that the Ramadan crescent will not appear to the naked eye or telescope on the day of the sighting (Friday April 1) in most Islamic countries, but calculations astronomical signs indicate its birth and sunset after sunset, a period that does not allow it to be seen.

Calculations by the International Center for Astronomy determined the age of the crescent from birth to sunset in some Islamic capitals as follows:

Jakarta: The crescent moon sets 11 minutes after sunset, and its age is 03 hours and 43 minutes.

Abu Dhabi: It sets 14 minutes after sunset, and its age is 09 hours and 5 minutes.

Makkah Al-Mukarramah: It sets 17 minutes after sunset and its age is 10 hours and 25 minutes.

Amman and Jerusalem: It sets 16 minutes after sunset, and its age is 10 hours and 34 minutes.

Cairo: It sets 17 minutes after sunset, and its age is 10 hours and 54 minutes.

Khartoum: sets 18 minutes after sunset, and its age is 11 hours 05 minutes.

Rabat: It sets 23 minutes after sunset, and its age is 13 hours and 22 minutes.
