Riyadh: When is the moon of Zil Hajj likely to be seen in most of the Muslim countries of the world, the astronomer said.
In a statement issued by the International Astronomical Center, it is said that there is a possibility of seeing the moon in countries where Sunday, June 18, is the 29th of Dhul-Qaad. In these countries, the 1st Dhul Hijjah may be on Monday, June 19 and Eid-ul-Adha on Wednesday, June 28. In Pakistan, June 18 will be the 28th of Zul-Qaad, and the meeting of the Sawit Hilal Committee for moon sighting will be held on Monday, June 19, i.e., on the 29th of Zul-Qaad.
1st Dhul Hajj in Pakistan is expected on Tuesday 20th June or Wednesday 21st June. Thus, Eid-ul-Adha in Pakistan is likely to happen on Thursday, June 29, or Friday, June 30.
According to the International Center of Astronomy, in most Muslim countries, efforts will be made to see the moon of Zil Hajj on 29 Dhu Qaad, i.e. 18 June. In the western and central regions of the Islamic world, the moon will be difficult to see even through this historical Koteli scope.
