Update : 08 Apr 2024, 08:03 PM

The Muslim community in Australia will officially celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on Wednesday.

The Australian Fatwa Council announced in a statement on Monday.

Following inquiries to local and global observatories, the Australian Fatwa Council has confirmed that the new moon will be sighted on Tuesday at specific times in Sydney and Perth. Consequently, Tuesday will be the last day of Ramadan, and Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on Wednesday.

The Fatwa Council said that the determination of Eid-ul-Fitr’s date is based on the calculated birth of the moon before sunset, the duration of the moonset after sunset, and the possibility of moon sighting.

This method aligns with approaches adopted by prominent global scholars' councils.

While recognizing and respecting diverse opinions within the Muslim community, the Australian National Imams Council and the Australian Fatwa Council emphasize unity in preserving common values and interests.
