The Shawwal moon is first sighted in Saudi Arabia which confirms the date of the festival in other countries. In India, the moon is sighted next day and the country celebrates Eid accordingly.

Eid Ul Fitr to be celebrated on May 25 as the moon could not be sighted today says, Delhi’s Jama Masjid’s Shahi Imam, Syed Ahmed Bukhari.

In India, Muslims will celebrate the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr on May 25, Monday. Once the Shawwal moon will be sighted on May 24, Eid 2020 celebrations will begin. 

Eid-ul-Fitr 2020 was supposed to be celebrated on May 22 but the moon was not sighted in Saudi Arabia on Friday, therefore, the countries that lie west of the International Date Line, will celebrate Eid on May 24, Sunday. Six countries will celebrate the Eid ul-Fitr on Sunday. Muslims in India except for Kerala and South Karnataka, the Eid ul-Fitr will celebrate Eid on May 25 after the moon will be sighted on May 24.
