KARACHI: Monday, June 26, is the first day of Eid al Fitr in Pakistan as the crescent of Shawwal has been sighted in many parts of Punjab and Sindh, officials said.

"Shawwal’s crescent has been sighted in Lahore, Faisalabad, Multan, Dera Ghazi Khan, Badin, Pakpattan, Kasur, Bahwalpur, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Rohri, Naushero Feroze, Nawabshah, Sanghar, Mandi Bahauddin, Burewale, Kashmore, Okara, Lodhran, Shujabad, Karachi and other parts of Sindh and Punjab, which means Eid starts on Monday," according to zonal moon sighting committees and Met officials.

According to SAMAA TV footage, the crescent can be seen clearly with a naked eye.

Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Chairman Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman made the formal announcement at a press conference in Islamabad.

"It has been unanimously agreed by all members of the central and zonal ruet-e-hilal committees that Monday, 1438 hijri, is the first day of Eid across the country," he said.

The CEC chairman expressed his condolence over the loss of lives in Ahmedpur Sharqia, Parachinar and Quetta.

The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) had already predicted that Eid-ul-Fitr was most likely to fall on June 26.

The Muslim calendar is determined by Moon phases making each month last either 29 or 30 days. Islamic years span on average between 354 and 355 days. - SAMAA
