The Central
Ruet-e-Hilal Committee is meeting today (Sunday) to sight the moon of Shawal
1443 AH, which will decide the first day of Eid ul Fitr 2022.

The
main meeting of the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee is being held at the Ministry of
Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony in Islamabad with Maulana Abdul Khabir
Azad in the chair, while the zonal committees are sighting the Shawwal crescent
in their respective areas.

Maulana
Azad will announce the final decision about the sighting of the crescent.
“So far, we have not received any news related to the sighting of the
moon,” he said, according to Geo News.

At
present, the age of the moon is 17 hours, and according to the Pakistan
Meteorological Department (PMD), the age of the moon must be 19 hours in order
to sight it.

Meanwhile,
the meeting of Ruet-e-Hilal’s zonal committee is underway in Peshawar too and
according to the PMD, the duration of sighting the moon in the provincial
capital would be 37 minutes. On the other hand, the time of citing the moon in
Lahore and Karachi has finished and the moon has not been sighted there.

If
the moon is spotted today, Pakistan will mark Eidul Fitr tomorrow (Monday).

However,
the PMD said that there are no chances of the Shawwal moon being sighted today
due to unsuitable weather conditions, and therefore, Eidul Fitr may fall on
Tuesday in Pakistan.

Meanwhile,
South Waziristan in Pakistan and Afghanistan are celebrating Eid today after
sighting the Shawwal moon yesterday.
