Eid Al Fitr 2024: First Day of Celebration Announced; Crescent Moon Not Seen in Saudi Arabia

One of the recommendations of the Second Astronomical Conference, which was attended by jurists and decision-makers from many Islamic countries, was the following: “If astronomy determines that conjunction does not occur before sunset or that the moon sets before the sun on the twenty-ninth day of the month, then the calls for searching for the crescent moon.” The Center pointed out that many jurists and astronomers believe that there is no need to look for the crescent after sunset on Monday because the moon is not present in the sky at that time, and seeing the crescent is therefore absolutely impossible on that day from those areas, and this is known in advance from definitive scientific calculations.

The jurists have agreed that there is no conflict between it and the Sunnah of the Messenger (PBUH), to search for the crescent; among the jurists who advocated for this recommendation before the conference was His Eminence Sheikh Abdullah Bin Muni, an advisor to the Royal Court and a member of the Council of Senior Scholars in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, several Islamic nations that use the crescent sighting to mark the beginning of the Hijri month naturally accept this proposal.

Most private sector employees will receive a nine-day break, considering regular weekends, if Eid is announced on April 10.
