Due to no positive global nor local hilaal/moon sighting, and in accordance with the hadeeth of the Messesnger of Allah (SAW). (Fast when you you see the crescent. If it s obscured to you, then complete thirty days of Sha'baan, and break your fast when you see the crescent. If it is obscured to you then fast thirty days) by Al-Bukharee and Muslim.
According to Hadeeth and the conclusion of not sighting the moon. The first day of Ramadan (fasting) will be Sunday July 29th and the first night of Taraweeh Prayers will be Saturday July 28th at 10:05pm.
May Allah accept from all of us our Prayers, Fasting, Charity and Good deeds in this blessed month of Ramadan.

"O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious). (Fasting) for a fixed number of days, but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the same number (should be made up) from other days. And as for those who can fast with difficulty, (i.e. an old man, etc.), they have (a choice either to fast or) to feed a poor person (for every day). But whoever does good of his own accord, it is better for him. And that you fast, it is better for you if only you know." (2:183-84)
Allah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you. (He wants that you) must complete the same number (of days), and that you must magnify Allah for having guided you so that you may be grateful to Him" (2: 185).
"Verily! We have sent it (this Quran) down in the night of Al-Qadr.
And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr is?
The night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months
Therein descend the angels and the Ruh (Gabriel) by Allah's Permission with all Decrees,
Peace! until the appearance of dawn (97:1-5)
