QCH announces May 13 as the first day of Eid
Qatar Calendar House (QCH) has announced that May 13, 2021 (Thursday) will be astronomically the first day of the month of Shawwal and the first day of the blessed Eid al-Fitr of this year and that the corresponding Wednesday, May 12, 2021 is the completion of the blessed month of Ramadan 1442 AH.
The official announcement decided on the beginning of Shawwal for this year remains within the competence of the Moon Sighting Committee of the Ministry of Endowments (Awqaf) in Qatar.
Engineer Faisal Al-Ansari, Executive Director of Sheikh Abdullah Al-Ansari Complex, said that that the crescent of the month of Shawwal for the year 1442 AH will be born on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 and that at 10 pm local time it will not be possible to see the crescent during the evening time of the investigation day in the Qatar sky along with the skies from Arab and other Islamic conditions as the crescent of the month of Shawwal was not born at sunset on the day of the investigation.
It is also worth mentioning that the beginnings and ends of the Hijri months depend on the Moon’s movement and position in its orbit around the Earth, while the beginnings and ends of the Gregorian months depend on the Earth’s movement in its orbit around the sun.
