JEDDAH – Saudi moon observers said that there was no sight of Ramazan crescent Tuesday.

The first day of the Islamic holy month of Ramazan will most likely be on Thursday, as Al-Arabiya news channel reported.

Bad weather and dust made observation difficult, according to the TV channel.

The Saudi Arabian high court is due to look at scientific reports and determine the first day of the holy month.

Muslims around the world are set to mark the month, during which believers abstain from eating, drinking and smoking from dawn until sunset.
