makkahcalendar.org -

We are very happy to announce that Eid Al-Fitr 2013 (1434) [Aid El-Fitr 2013 (1434)] should be celebrated on Thursday, 8th August 2013 almost all over the world with a few exceptions as mentioned below. This is because on 6th August 2013, crescent visibility is not expected anywhere in the world and the extension of the zone of observation on the next day, 7th August 2013, covers almost all the countries of the world. Thus, Ramadan fasting should be ended on Wednesday, 7th August 2013 and Shawwal 2013 should start on the next day, 8th August 2013. Please click here to get more details with the required calculations that explain why almost all countries in the world should celebrate Eid Al-Fitr 2013 (Aid El-Fitr 2013) on the same day of 8th August 2013. Please see the country list below arranged continent wise showing where Eid Al-Fitr should be celebrated on 8th August 2013.

Do remember Eid Al-Fitr 2013 is on Thursday, 8th August 2013 in almost the entire world.


Few Exceptions


In the case of Russia, the extension of the zone of observation includes the greatest part of this country. However, a small part of Russia, to the east of Okhotsk, is not covered by the extension of the zone of observation on the evening of 7th August 2013. Similarly, for the Kiribati Islands, the extension of the zone of observation covers up to Arorae Island. The eastern part of this island is not covered by the extension of the zone of observation on the evening of 7th August. In the case of Samoa and Tonga islands, this zone does not cover the totality of the islands. Thus, in Kiribati, Samoa and Tonga, Eid Al-Fitr 2013 should be celebrated on Friday, 9th August 2013. In Russia, the small part of the country to the east of Okhotsk should also celebrate Aid on 9th August 2013.
