Taqabbal Allāhu minnā wa minkum sālihal-a’māl
Islam21c can confirm that ʿEid al-Fitr 1439 will be on Friday – corresponding to 15th June 2018 – based on expert testimonials. As the majority of Muslims in the UK follow Saudi Arabia in starting and ending Ramaḍān, tomorrow will be the day of ʿEid. The official declaration of the Supreme Court of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is expected shortly, inshāAllāh.
May Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿālā) accept our siyām, our qiyām, our duʿā’, our charity and all our ʿIbādah, Āmīn.
ʿAbdullāh b. ʿUmar (raḍiy Allāhu ʿanhumā) reported Allāh’s Messenger (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) as saying:
The month (of Ramaḍān) may consist of twenty nine days; so when you see the new moon observe fast and when you see (the new moon again at the commencement of the month of Shawwāl) then break it, and if the sky is cloudy for you, then calculate it (and complete thirty days).
Based on this narration, since, the crescent of 1st of Shawwāl 1439 has been sighted tonight, we will end the month of Ramaḍān 1439 on Thursday at Maghrib and celebrate ʿEid al-Fitr on Friday inshāAllāh.
