Saudi Arabia Sights Moon, Will Celebrate Eid al-Fitr Friday, June 15

The committee's research chief earlier said moon will not be visible on the evening of Thursday

According to Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council (RHRC), the Shawwal moon will not be observed on Thursday and thus the festival will be celebrated on June 16, Saturday, in the country.

12 months of Islamic calendar carry either 29 or 30 days.

Muslims in the coastal region of Karnataka will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on Friday June 14.

The moon-sighting committee of the UAE will convene Thursday night to deliberate on and announce when Eid al-Fitr will fall. The date of Eid al-Fitr varies from country to country, depending on the moon's sighting.

This year Eid-ul-Fitr is falling on 14th June evening and will be concluded on 15th June evening. Ramadan is one of the five pillars of the Islamic faith.

EXPRESSWill the moon be sighted tonight?

The UAE's moon sighting committee uses a two pronged approach, first searching for the new moon using telescopes and then confirming the new moon by sighting it with the naked eye.

"This year some 11.5 million people will leave the capital Dhaka to go back to their villages to celebrate Eid", said Mozammel Hoque Chowdhury, general secretary of the Passengers Welfare Association.

After the prayers, Muslims visit their family members and friends to wish Eid Mubarak to each other or host Eid celebrations at their homes or community centers.

In Down South, no moon was sighted in Australia and New Zealand.

Ramadan-ul-Kareem in all regions of India began on May 17, barring parts of Maharashtra and the states of Assam and West Bengal.
