Ramadan Continues Day 29 Tomorrow

shawwal moon sightingSome authentic sources claimed that the crescent volume was observed much decreased contrary to normal expectation hence if people sighted the moon yesterday then Eid ul Fitr will be observed today.

One alternate fasting day would have been suggested for Muslims across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) as compensation to complete a month for Ramadan fasting, since it is mandatory to fast for at least 29 days during Ramadan.

There was an incident in the past 30 years when the moon sighting committee of the country announced Eid ul Fitr celebration after the 28th day of the holy month when people were having Sahaar diet for the 29th fast.


Some people I spoke to felt that their fasting would be incomplete because it is a tradition to observe the holy month of Ramadan fasting for 30 days. People like Faiza felt that it should be 30 days but others like Benaliza said, “They base it from the moon, that is why they are observing the moon. If God meant it to be on Thursday, then we have to be there to celebrate the Eid.”


But it was announced today that the Shawwal moon was not sighted by the KSA moonsight committee. So you can continue your fasting and prayers.
