There is a strong possibility that the Shawwal moon will be visible in Pakistan today.

The age of the moon will be complete enough to be visible to the human eye this evening, according to experts of Meteorological Department. However, the final announcement of the moon of Shawwal will be made by the central Ruet-i-Hilal Committee.

The moon of Shawwal has not been seen in Saudi Arabia, in view of which, Eid-ul-Fitr will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, in Saudi Arabia.


In addition to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Kuwait will celebrate Eid tomorrow, according to media reports in the Gulf-based newspapers. Simi­larly, Australia has also announced that Eid will be observed on Wednesday.

The central moon-sighting body will meet at the roof of the Federal Secreta­riat’s Kohsar Block in Islamabad, while meetings of zonal and district Ruet-i-Hilal committees will be held at their respective headquarters concurrently.

In a statement on Mon­day, the committee requ­es­ted citizens to share any information regarding sightings of the moon with the committees in their respective areas.

If the committee manages to spot the new moon today, then Pakistan will also celebrate Eid with the rest of the world.
