The Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council predicted the date of the sighting of the Eidul Fitr 2023 crescent in Pakistan.

According to the details, after more than 15 days of Ramazan have passed all over the world including Pakistan, the preparations for the arrival of Eidul Fitr have been started.

While in Pakistan, the Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council made a prediction regarding the sighting of the Shawwal moon in the country.

Khalid Ijaz Mufti, Secretary General of Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council, said that the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee meeting will be held on the evening of Thursday, April 20, to see the moon of Shawwal-ul-Mukarram. However, it is unlikely that the Eid moon will be visible this evening, so Eidul Fitr will be celebrated on Saturday, April 22, 2023, after completing 30 fasts.

According to the Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council, the birth of the moon will take place on Thursday, April 20 at 9:13 am Pakistan time.

On that day i.e. the evening of the 29th of Ramazan, the age of the moon at sunset, which should be more than 19 hours for sighting, will be less than 10 hours in all areas of Pakistan.

On the other hand, the difference between sunset and moon, which should be more than 40 minutes, that difference will be 21 minutes in Peshawar, Gilgit, Muzaffarabad, Charsadda, Islamabad/Rawalpindi, Quetta and Jiwani and 20 minutes in Lahore and Karachi.

Even though the weather will be very clear in all areas of Pakistan, there is no possibility of seeing the moon even on the telescope on the evening of April 20.

He said that Ramazan 30 will be celebrated on the 21st April and 1st Shawwal will be celebrated on the 22nd April.

He said every report of a sighting of the crescent from any province or any city or any area of Pakistan on the evening of 20th April will be false.

Secretary Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council said that the age of the moon at sunset on the evening of April 21 will be more than 33 hours in all areas of Pakistan, while the difference between sunset and moonset will be 80 minutes in all areas of Pakistan.

In this way, on the night of the 30th fast, the crescent will appear thick and late, on which some people will say that it is not the first, but two-day crescent, while from the Shari'i and scientific point of view, it will be the first crescent.
