Eid-el-Fitr Announcement 2016 (1437 A.H.)

Just a short time ago, Fatwa-Online was informed of the official decision and announcement of the High Judiciary Council of Saudi Arabia that since the moon of Shawwaal was not sighted this evening, here in Saudi Arabia, we shall be completing thirty (30) days of Ramadhaan (1437 A.H.), in accordance with the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam):

“Fast when you see the crescent [of Ramadhaan]. If it is obscured to you, then complete thirty days of Sha’baan. And break your fast when you see the crescent [of Shawwaal]. If it is obscured to you then fast thirty days [of Ramadhaan]”.

[transmitted by al-Bukhaaree and Muslim].

Subsequently, we shall be celebrating ‘Eed al-Fitr on Wednesday 6th July 2016, in shaa.-Allaah.
