Riyadh, June 14: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) will celebrate Eid al-Fitr tomorrow if the moon is sighted today in any part of the nation today.

Ahead of the moon sighting, the Saudi Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the local populace to submit their testament to the designated authorities if they sight the Hilal moon in any part of the Kingdom. The court has explicitly asked to look-out for the moon on 29th Ramadan. Experts claim the crescent is likely to spotted on 29th, instead of 30th, as the Ramadan moon was spotted on 30th Shaban (the Islamic month preceding Ramadan). "Two back-to-back crescents on 30th is very unlikely. We expect Saudi Arabia to celebrate Eid on Friday," said a Mumbai-based cleric associated with the Dawat-e-Islami.

Ramzan in Saudi Arabia, along with most parts of the world, began on May 17. A total of 29 fasts have been observed by believers till today. If the crescent is not sighted this evening, the 30th fast would be observed tomorrow and Eid will be celebrated on Saturday.

Ahead of Eid-al-Fitr, the Saudi government had announced a holiday beginning from Thursday. The holidays will remain till June 18, with work in all sectors resuming from June 20.
