The moon-sighting committee of Oman issued a statement affirming that the Zul Hijja crescent was sighted on Saturday evening.

This means Sunday will be first day of Zul Hijja, and Eid Al Adha will begin on July 20. The annual Haj pilgrimage will start on Zul Hijja 7 (July 17) and the day of Arafat will fall on Zul Hijja 9, July 19. Approximately 60,000 people from Saudi Arabia will be allowed to perform the Haj this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
