Saudi Astronomer’s prediction about the moon of Eid-ul-Fitr

The Saudi astronomer made an important prediction about the moon of Eid-ul-Fitr.

According to the Saudi News Portal, Abdallah Al-Khudiri, an astronomer, religious scholar and member of the local Sighting of the Crescent Committee, has said that it is not true that the moon cannot be seen on Thursday. After 24 minutes it will stay on the horizon which means if the moon is clear then the moon can be seen.

He said that it is true that it is not possible to see the moon due to the solar eclipse in some countries on Thursday, but this solar eclipse will not be visible in the Arab world and will be in Southeast Asia, Australia and the Indian Ocean.

But in countries where there will be no eclipse, it is not at all impossible to see the moon on the horizon for 24 minutes after sunset, and the sighting depends on the cleanliness of the weather. Stayed in horizon for 7 minutes.

In this regard, the International Astronomical Center says that there is no possibility of Shawwal moon sighting on Thursday, 29th of Ramadan, so Eid-ul-Fitr can be on Saturday, April 22.

This prediction is based on astronomical information and the date of Eid will be confirmed by the concerned authorities based on the sighting of the new moon. In this context, it has been said that it is not possible to see the moon on Thursday with open eyes from anywhere in the Arab countries and the Islamic world.

In most Arab countries except parts of West Africa starting from Libya, it is not possible to see the moon through telescopes on Thursday, and so it is most likely that Eid-ul-Fitr will be on Saturday.
