Shawwal moon sighted in Saudi Arabia

This year Muslims across the world are going to celebrate on June 26 (Monday).

Sixty nine-year-old Bashir Bape, a Rabodi resident said, "My entire family wakes up before dawn and visits the Dargah for Eid ki Namaz at 7.30 am". However, the holy month is followed by the observation of a three-day celebration by Muslims: Eid-ul-Fitr.

President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed dispatched congratulatory cables to the leaders of Muslim countries on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr. The exact date of Eid depends on a combination of the sighting of the new moon and astronomical calculations. The video's description has lecture notes with approximate timestamps. "This local miltant group robbed us the chance to observe Ramadhan peacefully and stole from us the opportunity to celebrate Eid'l Fitr and be with our loved ones in this religious occasion", Adiong said.

The decision to celebrate the festival on Sunday came following the sighting of the moon of Shawwal, the month following Ramzan.Official Twitter for Haramain, which gives updates about Makkah and Madinah, announced the sighting of the moon.
