Hadhramout Moon Phase - Day Four Of Ramadhan

It is still cloudy over some parts of Hadhramout and the moon is not clear most of the time. The crescent is getting larger as we complete the fourth day of Ramadhan. Most of Hadhramaut is very quiet during the day, including urban centers. After the Taraweeh prayers, all urban centers become very active until before the morning prayers.


Of all the urban centers, Mukalla is the busiest; and over crowded. In some parts of Mukalla, Sha'erj in particular - it is so congested, that in some streets it is almost impossible to move around. Mosques are full. Shops are busy and full. And the Khor is full of lights and people. All celebrating Ramadan.
