MAKKAH – The majority of Muslims worldwide will celebrate `Eid Al-Fitr, which crowns the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan, on Friday, June 15, after Saudi officials confirmed seeing the moon of Shawwal.

Religious authorities in Saudi Arabia have announced that the new moon of Shawwal, the 10th month of Islamic calendar, was sighted on Thursday, June 14.

“Therefore, Friday, June 15, will be the first day of Shawwal,” Khaleej Times reported.

Egypt’s Dar Al-Ifta (House of Fatwa) has also announced that Friday, June 15, will be the start of `Eid Al-Fitr.

Emirates, Oman, Jordan, Iraq, and Bahrain have also announced seeing the new moon and therefore will celebrate `Eid on Friday.

Kuwait, Yemen, Lebanon, Qatar, Turkey, and Russia will also celebrate `Eid on Friday. In Nigeria, the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs announced that `Eid Al-Fitr will start on Friday.

In Australia, Imams Council of the ACT said `Eid Al-Fitr will be celebrated on Friday.
