The meeting will be held under the chairmanship of Minister of Justice Sultan Al Badi, along with a number of senior officials in general.
Eid Al Fitr to be announced tonight.
As a Muslim norm, the Islamic calendar is determined by moon phases making each month last either 29 or 30 days. Islamic years span on average between 354 and 355 days.
Should a crescent moon be spotted on tonight, Shawwal 1 will begin on Friday – signalling the first day of Eid Al Fitr. If a new moon is not seen by the committee, Friday will be assumed Ramadan 30 and Eid Al Fitr will begin on Saturday.
Two weeks ago, the International Astronomical Centre said Eid would most likely fall on Friday, June 15, in most Islamic countries. The official date is subject to the announcement from the moon-sighting committee.
Therefore, everyone should be ready to celebrated the end of this fasting month, because not everyone finished all this fasting period.
