Eid ul-Fitr likely to be on June 5th

Monday, May 27, 2019

A number of Astronomers have predicted a major split this year between Arab and Muslim countries around the beginning of the month of Shawwal and Eid ul-Fitr.

Astronomer Dr Saleh AlUjairi said he expected Tuesday, June 4 to be the first day of Eid alFitr, depending on astrological calculations. He told that the Crescent will be born in Kuwait on Monday at 1:02 after midnight, and it will stay for three minutes in the sky, but it will be impossible to see it clearly, as the sun’s rays will prevent this in many Arab countries.

For his part, astronomer Adel Marzouq that the month of Ramadan this year will complete the number of 30 days and that the first day of Eid ulFitr will be Wednesday (June 5).

Astronomer Adel Saadoun said that “a great astronomical division will occur between Islamic countries around the dawn of the month of Shawwal and the confirmation of Eid ul-Fitr.” Al-Saadoun told KUNA that the new moon or pairing will take place at one o’clock and two minutes on Monday, June 3, and that the moon will be absent in Kuwait after the sun sets by one minute and the situation in the Arab countries is about 5 minutes.
