Shawwal moon unlikely to appear on May 23: Met Department

The Meteorological Department has predicted that the Shawwal moon is unlikely to appear on Saturday, May 23.

According to a statement issued by the Meteorological Department, the new moon will be born on May 22 (Ramadan 28) at 10:39 pm Pakistan time.

The new moon will be less likely to appear on May 23, the 29th of Ramadan, while the weather will be cloudy in most parts of the country on that day.

Eid-ul-Fitr may be on Monday, May 25. However, the decision will be taken in the meeting of Ruet-e-Hilal Committee which will be held on May 23.

It should be noted that Ramadan in Pakistan started on Saturday, April 25.

A meeting of the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee was held on April 23, after which Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman announced that the moon would not be visible. The first day of Ramadan will be on Saturday, April 25.

The members of the committee, experts from the Meteorological Department and for the first time a representative of the Ministry of Science and Technology also attended the meeting.

In Gulf countries, including Saudi Arabia, Ramadan commenced on April 24 and Eid al-Fitr is likely to take place there on May 24.
