Saudi Arabia calls for sighting Shawwal Moon on Monday

Eid al-Fitr prayers will be observed tomorrow (June 4), according to Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) Director of Sharia, Sheikh Yahaya Ibrahim Kakungulu.

"The Shawwal crescent moon was not visible across the country".

The ministry has prepared a total of 489 places including mosques and open grounds for offering the Eid prayers across the country, said an earlier statement. The special Eid-al-Fitr delicacies are cooked at every Muslim household consisting of Biryani, Haleem, Nalli Nihari, Seviyan, Mutton Kaleji and different kinds of kebabs.

Even as some Gulf countries are yet to convene their panels on moon-sighting, six countries announced that the first day of Eid ul-Fitr will begin on Wednesday.

As the last few days of the holy month of Ramadan are drawing to a close, Muslims all over the world are gearing up for the auspicious festival of Eid-ul-Fitr.

"It's a good time to visit family and embrace them with a lot of joy that you've been able to get through this month together".

Many Muslims are fasting from dawn to dusk for the month of Ramadan.

The traditional Eid greeting is to say "Eid Mubarak". An announcement from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is awaited, where the sunset time has approached. The King and the Crown Prince also received several similar cables from the Muslim rulers and leaders. To which the response is 'allah razı olsun'. or "may God bless you'".

The Grand Mufti of Australia, Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohamed, wished the Muslim community a joyful and blessed Eid al Fitr and encouraged the community to "engage with their neighbors and friends in displaying the 'true and peaceful image of Islam, and the true spirit of being an Australian Muslim".
