Eid Al Adha 2019, Zul Hijjah moon, Indonesia

August 2 confirmed as first day of Zul Hijjah.

The Ministry of Religious Affairs of Indonesia on Thursday confirmed that the first day of the Islamic months of Zul Hijjah would be August 2. Therefore, the festival of Eid Al Adha will begin on Sunday, August 11. Saudi Arabia, however, is yet to confirm the dates.

Moon sighting committees in Saudi Arabia and the UAE are scheduled to meet today evening to sight the Zul Hijjah moon.

Eng Mohammed Shawkat, Director of the International Astronomical Center, earlier told Khaleej Times that Friday, August 2, is expected to be the first day of the month of Zul Hijjah.
