When the new moon is sighted on the evening of the last day of Ramadan, it marks the end of the fasting month and enters Syawal, the tenth month in the Islamic calendar. Muslims celebrate Hari Raya Puasa. A new day in the Islamic calendar is defined as the beginning of sunset. As such, Ramadan comes to an end when the new moon is sighted.
