Oman's Religious Affairs has announced that the start of the Hijra year 1443 in Oman would be on Tuesday, August 10, 2021, as the New Moon of Muharram had not been sighted, earlier tonight.

As we reported, earlier this week (2021-08-02), Oman's Ministry of Labour had announced that the first day of the upcoming month of Muharram 1443 AH would be an official public holiday in Oman.

But, as was the case in the recent past (2020-08-20, 2020-08-18, 2019-08-25 and 2019-08-19), the date of the aforementioned announced Omani non-working Islamic new year public holiday had remained to be announced, until tonight.
