Just in: Saudi declares Wednesday as Eid-il-Fitri

The Supreme Court of Saudi Arabia has announced that Wednesday, April 10, will mark the beginning of the month of Shawwal, marking end of the holy month of Ramadan for this year, 1445 AH.

It announced the date after the new moon to mark end of the Ramadan fasting was not sighted in any part of the country.

Announcing the development on Monday, Saudi declared that Tuesday, April 9, will be the last day of Ramadan, extending the fasting period to 30 days.

This disclosure was made on Haramin’s official social media page, an official platform for the Muslim community across the world.

“The crescent moon was not sighted in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, Eid Al Fitr will be celebrated on Wednesday, 10th April 2024.

“May Allāh allow us to utilise the remaining moments of this blessed month to engage in that which pleases Him, may He accept our siyām, qiyām & a’māl & may He allow us to witness many more Ramadāns in good health. Āmīn,” it added.

The sighting of the crescent moon determines the first day of Shawwal, which marks Eid-ul-Fitr.

It may be noted that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) marked the first Ramadan on Monday, March 11.
