Saudi Arabia has announced the crescent of Shawwal has not been spotted, meaning that fasting continues on Tuesday.

It stated that the celebration of Eid-El-Fitr, which ushers in a new Islamic month, will take place on Wednesday, April 10.

This was disclosed on an official platform for the Muslim community across the world.

They wrote: “The crescent moon was not sighted in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, Eid Al Fitr will be celebrated on Wednesday, 10th April 2024.

“May Allāh allow us to utilise the remaining moments of this blessed month to engage in that which pleases Him, may He accept our siyām, qiyām & a’māl & may He allow us to witness many more Ramadāns in good health. Āmīn.”

Nigerian Muslims, however, are expected to hold off until later in the day for the declaration made by Sa’ad Abubakar, the President General of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and the Sultan of Sokoto.
