Ruet-e-Hilal Committee to Meet Today for Eid-ul-Fitr Moon Sighting
The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee will have its formal meeting tonight at the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony in Islamabad.
The purpose of this meeting is to find the crescent moon of Shawwal 1444 AH, which will determine when Eid-ul-Fitr 2023 will be commemorated throughout the country.
The Zonal and District Ruet-e-Hilal Committees will also hold meetings at their respective offices. Following that, Maulana Syed Muhammad Abdul Khabir Azad, Chairman of the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, would give the final declaration regarding the moon sighting.
The Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council (RHRC) said earlier this month that Eid-ul-Fitr will most likely be celebrated on Saturday, 22 April, explaining that while the committees will convene on the evening of April 20 (tonight), the chances of seeing the moon are slim.
