This year, the holy Ramadan month may be completed with 30 fasts. As a result, the holy Eid-ul-Fitr will be held on Wednesday (April 10) in Saudi Arabia and its neighboring countries. As per that, there is a possibility that the holy Eid-ul-Fitr will be held in Bangladesh on April 11.

This information was learned from the calculations of international astronomers, although it depends on the moon sighting. As a lunar year, each month consists of 29 or 30 days. In that case, the number of fasts this year depends on the moon sighting, reports Al Jazeera.

Monday will mark the 29th of Ramadan in the Middle East. On this day, the Supreme Court of Saudi Arabia called upon the residents to see the moon of the month of Shawwal. If the moon is sighted on April 8, then Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated in Saudi Arabia on April 9. And if the moon is not seen, 30 days of Ramadan will be completed.

Meanwhile, the research conducted by Dr. Jubair Muhammad Ehsanul Haque, chairman of the Arabic department of Dhaka University (DU), shows that during the new moon, Bangladesh’s time will be April 9 at 12:20 am. So, will the moon be seen in the sky of Bangladesh on the evening of April 9? When the sun sets on the evening of April 9 in Bangladesh, the duration of the moon will be 18 hours.

It can be seen with the naked eye if the sky is clear. There is no doubt that it can be seen if you use a telescope. However, Bangladesh may not see the moon due to its Saudi-dependent mentality. Since it will be announced in advance that the 10th will be Eid in Saudi Arabia, we may not see or want to see the moon on the evening of the 9th.

Then there is a strong possibility that after completing 30 fasts, we will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on Thursday, April 11, in Bangladesh. But if one does see the moon in the sky of Bangladesh on the evening of the 10th, he or she will see that moon much bigger. Because the moon will be 42 hours old at that time.

And if Bangladesh observes the moon on April 9 and celebrates Eid on April 10, that will be a big event (the possibility of which is very slim). This year, Indonesia and Malaysia may celebrate Eid a day earlier than Bangladesh on April 10, but it cannot be said for sure.
