  3. @Niazi @Anonymous: As per our calculations and reports, in Turkey there is no chance of Eid ul fitr 2016 to be on July 5th. Though, Insha'Allah on July 5th evening, the moon crescent of Shawwal 1437 will appear and can be seen by naked eye if weather conditions will be perfect and clear. And Insha'Allah, the first day of Eid al fitr in Turkey will be on Wednesday, July 6th 2016. Btw, we highly recommend everyone to follow and observe Hijri dates as per there local authorities.

    We started to fast 6th of June like in Saudi Arabia and they will have Eid on 5th of July, so can someone explain me how come we would celebrate one day later if the moon is spotted already in the east of Canada. The moon has to be spotted in Canada too!!! The moon and the sun don't lie. Who is responsible for sighting? Does anyone know what they are doing at all or they are just speeding the Final with their ignorance amongst Muslims!!!!???? Who should we follow??? May Allah guide us to the right path and away from ignorant people!!!!!!

    1. In South korea the Hijri month start by local sighting, the moon crescent will be visible on 5th of July using optical aid and, Insha'Allah the first day of Eid ul fitr will be on 6th of July.

    2. Saudi Arabia will observe Eid ul fitr 2016 on 6th of July, not on July 5th. You have to celebrate Eid as per your current location. Please let me know in detail if this doesn't answer your query.

    It might be on 5th of July… You never know….It depends on the moon… remember

  11. On what day is Eid in 2016?

  12. Thank you so much for the information……but in other site the date of Eid ul fitr is 8th July (Friday)….. why…

    1. Dear brother, Eid or any other Islamic events are based on moon phase visibility, so it's little difficult to predict exact date by calculation in much advance, although eid dates also varies country to country. So, probably the site you are referring may be for some country where the moon crescent become visible a day or two later (like Sri Lanka, Pakistan, etc.). Our mentioned date is an estimated date which is potentially valid for Saudi Arabia and for countries that follow Saudi Arabia or observe eid event on the same day, and Alhamdulillah we got credible record of it in past. I recommend you and other people to keep an eye on this page time to time for an update(s) regarding date confirmation. I hope this answer you query. Thank you.
