Saudi Arabia to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on 10 April


The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on 10 April (Wednesday) as no Shawwal moon was sighted in the sky of the country.

It added that the crescent would be born on April 8 at 11:21 pm and aged between 19 and 20 hours the next day around Maghrib prayers. The crescent could be spotted for over 50 minutes around sundown.

Ramadan started in Saudi Arabia and in most Arab countries on March 11. As the moon was not seen today, then Tuesday will be Ramadan 30 and Eid Al-Fitr will be on 10 April (Wednesday).

Eid-ul-Fitr is one of the two main Eid events in the Islamic calendar that involves feasts, gatherings, prayers and gift-giving. This Eid is celebrated in the month of Shawwal and continues for three days.
