Eid Al-Fitr on October 13


A majority of Muslim countries will celebrate 'Eid Al-Fitr, the feast that marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan, on Saturday, October 13.

The Abu-Dhabi-based Islamic Crescents' Observation Project announced that Friday, October 12, as the last day of Ramadan according to astronomical calculations.

In Egypt, the National Research Institute of Astronomy said astronomical calculations suggest that "Eid will fall on Saturday, October 13.

The calculations, however, differed in some other countries.

The Libyan Center for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences said based on astronomical calculations, October 12, will be the first day of Shawal and 'Eid. Saudi Arabia and Algeria will also observe 'Eid on October 12.

Moon sighting has always been a controversial issue among Muslim countries, and even scholars seem at odds over the issue.
