Supreme Court Calls for Sighting of Shawwal Crescent on Monday

The Supreme Court of Saudi Arabia has requested anyone who sees the Shawwal crescent with the naked eye or through telescopes on Monday (June 03, 2019) evening to report it to the nearest court.

Saudi Arabia and Muslims around the world are eagerly awaiting the crescent moon sighting as it will determine what day Eid al-Fitr will fall, ending the holy month of Ramadan and the fast of millions of Muslims.

The court also called on those interested to join the sighting committees that are in different locations.
