The first day of Eid al-Fitr will be Friday, June 15, in most Islamic countries after the moon of the month of Shawwal has been sighted.
Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Turkey, and Malaysia were among the first countries to announce Friday as the first day of Eid.
The moon was not sighted in India or in Pakistan, which means that Eid will be celebrated on Saturday, June 16.
New Zealand and Australia will also ring in the Eid celebrations on Saturday. – AJE
