Eid Al Fitr Will Be On August 31, Says ICOP
(21 August 2011)


The Islamic Crescent Observation Project (ICOP) has said that Eid al-Fitr of this Hijri year 1432 will be on Wednesday, August 31st in most Muslim countries, considering that sighting of the moon is a condition for the beginning of the month of Shawwal.

In most of the Muslim countries which started Ramadan on 1st of August will have their twenty-ninth Ramadan, on August 29th and on that day the moon sighting is impossible from all regions of the Islamic world due to moonset before or with sunset, such as North and Central Asia including the UAE, Qatar , Bahrain, Kuwait, northern and central Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Levant and North Africa.

As for the rest of the Arab and Muslim world, the moon will be out in those areas after sunset, but the duration is too short that it does not allow to see the crescent by the eye or by using telescopes.

As for countries that do not require the sighting of the crescent moon, Eid will be on Tuesday, August 30.
