The Rawit Hilal Research Council has confirmed that Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on Saturday, April 22, 2023, after completing 30 fasts. The Secretary General of the Council, Khalid Ejaz Mufti, announced that the new moon of Shawwal will not be visible on the evening of April 20, as its age will be less than 10 hours on that day.

According to Mufti, the age of the moon should be more than 19 hours to be visible, and even if the information is clear on that day, the moon will not be visible. Therefore, any testimony received on the evening of April 20 will be false.

Mufti further stated that April 21 will be the 30th of Ramadan, completing the Islamic holy month’s fasting period. The sighting of the new moon of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, marks the end of Ramadan and the start of Eid-ul-Fitr celebrations.

The Rawit Hilal Research Council is a Pakistan-based organization that aims to sight the crescent moon and determine the start of Islamic months. The Council’s announcement of the date of Eid-ul-Fitr is followed by millions of Muslims in Pakistan and around the world.
