Eid Al Fitr could fall on Saturday, April 22, according to the International Astronomy Centre. However, the exact date will only be confirmed based on the moon sighting.
“The countries of the Islamic world will investigate the crescent of the month of Shawwal (Eid al Fitr 1444 AH) on Thursday, April 20, 2023 AD. Seeing the crescent on Thursday is not possible with the naked eye from anywhere in the Arab and Islamic world,” the International Astronomy Centre said via a Twitter post.
“Thus, the principle of adopting the sighting of the crescent as a condition for the start of the month is that Eid Al Fitr will be on Saturday, April 22,” the centre added.
