As per the officials of the Met Office, Eid-ul-Fitr is likely to be on the 25th of May. The officials said that the Shawwal moon is not anticipated to be seen on May 23.
According to the officials, the new moon will be born on the 22nd of May (that is the 28th of Ramazan) at 10:39 pm PST, howeverm it will be less likely to be become visible on the 29th of Ramazan, owing to the cloudy weather in most parts of the nation that day.
The holy month is expected to consist of 30 days instead of 29 days of fasting this year, while Eid will be celebrated on the 25th of May.
But, the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, led by Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman, will be taking a final verdict on the matter on the 23rd of May.
The information received confirmation by the Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council Secretary, Khalid Ijaz Mufti. He said that there will be 30 fasting days this holy month, and that Eid-ul-Fitr will fall on the 25th of May.
It is interesting to note that the forecast denies the information that was posted on by the Ministry of Science and Technology’s official website for the moon-sighting. The website says that Eid is anticipated to be on the 24th of May.
The moon-sighting website and the Met Office were on the same page from the start of the blessed month as both the departments forecasred the start of Ramazan on the 25th of April.
