Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Set to Convene Today for Zilhajj Moon Sighting

The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee is convening in Karachi today to spot the moon for Zilhajj. Zonal meetings will also occur in provincial capitals and Islamabad half an hour before Maghrib prayer to assist in the process. Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad, the chairman of the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, will lead the meeting.

Earlier, on June 3, an official from the Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council forecasted that the Eid-ul-Azha moon might be sighted on June 7. According to Khalid Ijaz Mufti, the Secretary General of the Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council, Eid-ul-Azha is expected to fall on Monday, June 17. Mufti predicts that the moon will be visible on June 7, with its age being 25 hours by sunset.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia announced that the crescent moon indicating the start of Zilhajj has been sighted. As per the Saudi Supreme Court, the first day of Zilhajj will be observed on Friday, June 7. Consequently, Arafat Day, marking the climax of the Hajj pilgrimage, will be on Saturday, June 15, followed by Eid-ul-Azha on Sunday, June 16.

This announcement, reported by Gulf News, confirms the key dates in the Islamic calendar. According to Saudi authorities, this observation aligns with lunar calculations, placing Arafat Day on the 9th day of Zilhajj and Eid-ul-Azha on the 10th day.
