The Crescent Committee of Canada hereby declares Eid Al-Fitr for Friday 15th June, 2018.
Eid Al-Fitr Mubarak!
Following the international sighting criteria, we have confirmed reports of new crescent sightings today on the 29th of Ramadan, 1439 for the month of Shawwal from South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Saudia Arabia, Morocco, Argentina, Guyana, Grenada, Barbados, Chile and Bolivia.
We expect many other sightings in North America as well, as the day progresses. We are also working with other moon sighting organizations including the newly formed Hilal Council of Canada who are also confirming these sightings. We will continue to update this page with sighting reports from the regions as they become available.
Calculated sighting and astronomical data also suggest that the crescent is easily visible today.
We wish everyone a blessed, joyous and fruitful Eid.
