Saudi Arabia will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on Sunday, authorities announced Friday evening.
The Shawwal moon wasn’t sighted in the kingdom and the nation will celebrate Eid on Sunday, the Saudi Gazette reported citing Saudi officials.
Eid prayers in Saudi Arabia will be offered at homes as the authorities have announced that the kingdom will remain under curfew during the five-day holiday. The decision is aimed at stopping the spread of coronavirus.
In Pakistan, the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee will meet in Karachi on Saturday to see the Shawwal moon.
