Eid al Adha 2020: Has the moon been sighted for Eid?
This reliance on the moon’s phases also means that it’s not possible to predict its date exactly – in 2020 it has been predicted to start on either Thursday 30 or Friday 31 July, lasting for four days.
According to Saudi Arabia, whose moon sighting lead is followed by many Muslims around the world, the new moon for Dhu al-Hijjah was not seen on Monday 20 July – this meant that the date for Eid al-Adha was confirmed for Friday, July 31.
In the Islamic calendar, celebrations for Eid al Adha begin on the 10th day of the 12th and final month.
The Islamic calendar is different to the Gregorian calendar and is not organised in the same way as many of us know it.
