When is Eid-ul-Fitr expected as per the astronomers. As Ramadan draws to a close, Muslims worldwide eagerly anticipate the joyous occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, known as the “festival of breaking the fast.” This significant celebration marks the end of the month-long fasting period. More details below.

When is Eid-ul-Fitr expected as per the astronomers

According to astronomical projections, Ramadan is slated to span 30 days this year, suggesting that Eid will likely commence on Wednesday, April 10, in Saudi Arabia and neighboring nations.

The timing of Eid al-Fitr hinges on the sighting of the crescent moon, signaling the onset of Shawwal, the 10th month in the Islamic (Hijri) calendar. Given that lunar months fluctuate between 29 and 30 days, Muslims traditionally await confirmation on the night preceding Eid to ascertain its exact date.

On the eve of Monday, April 8, the 29th day of Ramadan, moon observers will turn their gaze westward, scanning the horizon for the elusive crescent moon. If sighted, the following day is declared Eid; otherwise, Muslims observe an additional day of fasting to complete the 30-day lunar cycle. Different countries may adopt varying approaches, relying on independent moon sightings.

Upon confirmation of the crescent moon’s sighting, the announcement of Eid reverberates across television networks, radio stations, and mosques, heralding the commencement of festivities and prayers. This communal celebration underscores the significance of unity and reflection during the sacred month of Ramadan.
