The Office of the Supreme Religious Authority; His Eminence Sayed al-Sistani, in Najaf, issued a statement announcing tomorrow (Sunday) as the completion of the holy Month of Ramadhan 1441 AH and Monday May 25th, 2020 as Eid Al Fitr in Britain, Scandinavia, most European countries, and Middle East.
The full text of the statement of the Supreme Religious Authority’s office is as follows:
In the Name of God
The Office of the Supreme Religious Authority; His Eminence Sayed al-Sistani, in Najaf, informs the dear believers that tomorrow (Sunday) will be the last day of the holy Month of Ramadhan, and (Monday) May 25th, 2020 will be Eid Al-Fitr 1441 AH in Britain, Scandinavia, most European countries, and Middle East.
And since the fatwa of His Eminence is that the first of the month in each region follows the possibility of seeing the crescent moon with the naked eye and it does not help to be able to see it in other areas. And despite the large number of people investigating it, the crescent moon was not seen with the naked eye in Iraq and its surrounding areas on this night, although it is expected to be seen the next night high and very clear, but it does not mean that it is a crescent moon of two nights.
Thus, tomorrow Sunday will be the thirteenth of the holy month of Ramadhan and Monday May 25, 2020 will be the first day of Eid al-Fitr.
We ask God Almighty to accept all righteous deeds and to make the Eid blessed for all people and to make this valuable occasion a source of goodness and blessings for all Muslims every year. Truly, God is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
The Office of Sayed al-Sistani/ Najaf.
