The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee has announced that the moon of Shawwal 1444 Hijri has not been sighted anywhere in Pakistan. Therefore, the first Shawwal and Eid-ul-Fitr will be on Saturday, April 22, 2023.
Muslims around the world are currently observing the final days of Ramadan – and counting down to the end of their fast.
The end of the holy month and the arrival of Eid al-Fitr will be marked with celebrations centred around a large feast.
The holy month lasts between 29 and 30 days, until the sighting of the next crescent moon marks the end of Ramadan and the arrival of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar.
