When is Eid al-Fitr 2019 (1440)?


We are pleased to announce that all of North, Central and South America, some countries of Africa and French Polynesia will be able to celebrate Eid al-Fitr 2019 on 4th June 2019. The remaining countries of Africa, all of Asia, all of Europe and a major part of Oceania will be able to celebrate Eid al-Fitr 2019 on the next day, 5th June 2019. We have published below an extensive list of countries arranged as per the Eid celebration date. Kindly review it.

We invite you to take a look at the visibility curve of 3rd June 2019 for Shawwal 2019 (1440). As can be seen from the visibility curve, the crescent will be born very late at 10:01 UTC and will not be visible in most parts of the world except in the Polynesian islands. As the crescent can be sighted in the Polynesian islands before the fajr in most countries of North, Central and South America, and some countries of Africa (as listed below), they will be able to celebrate Eid al-Fitr 2019 on 4th June 2019.

We now request you to examine the visibility curve of 4th June 2019. As you can see, most countries of the world are in a direct visibility zone, green or blue. The countries where there is no direct visibility will be covered by the extension of the zone of the visibility. Hence, all the remaining countries, namely most countries of Africa, all of Europe, all of Asia and the majority of Oceania will be able to celebrate Eid al-Fitr 2019 on 5th June 2019.

We have published below an extensive list of countries arranged as per the Eid celebration date. Kindly read it below.

We will publish Eid al-fitr live moon sighting reports on this page. We invite you to visit our site towards the end of the Ramadan to get updates about the crescent sighting.
