Qatar Calendar House (QCH) said Tuesday that, based on astronomical calculations, Saturday will be the final day of Ramadan with Eid beginning Sunday.
Some unverified social media outlets reported Qatar Calendar House announcing Saturday as the first day of Eid Al Fitr. QCH dismissed those reports and stressed that the authority for sighting Shawwal crescent belongs to the Crescent Sighting Committee at the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs in the State of Qatar.
According to the Qatar Calendar House, based on the accurate astronomical calculations made by the specialists, seeing the crescent is impossible on the evening of next Friday, 29 of Ramadan 1441 AH, which means that May 23 is the last day of Ramadan, and Sunday (24) of May is the first day of Eid Al-Fitr.
دار التقويم القطري تعلن أنه طبقًا للحسابات الفلكية الدقيقة التي أجراها المختصون، فإن رؤية الهلال مستحيلة مساء يوم الجمعة القادم 29 من رمضان ، ما يعني أنه فلكيًا سيكون السبت هو المتمم لشهر رمضان، وأن الأحد هو أول أيام عيد الفطر المبارك.#قنا— وكالة الأنباء القطرية (@QatarNewsAgency) May 19, 2020
