Saudis and expats residing in the Kingdom have been asked by the Supreme Court to sight the crescent of the month of Shawwal on Monday (Ramadan 29 corresponding to June 3) for Eid Al-Fitr.

Last week the UAE government announced the Eid Al Fitr holiday for the public sector will begin on Sunday June 2, with work resuming on Sunday June 9.

An official Eid moon sighting announcement in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and other GCC states is expected by 07:30 pm local time.

Muslims in Saudi Arabia and around the world have been observing dawn-to-dusk fasts in the holy month of Ramadan or Ramzan and are keen to know the date for Chand Raat and Eid or Eid-ul-Fitr 2019.

The first day of Eid al Fitr 2019 will be tomorrow i.e. Tuesday June 04, 2019 if the new moon is sighted today. The lunar cycle is used to calculate the Islamic Hijri era and this year's Ramadan was observed at a different time across India, as the moon was not visible in some parts of the country.
