While the UAE is still awaiting the announcement of Eid Al Fitr, Muslims in other parts of the world are already looking forward to it. 
Since the date of Eid Al Fitr can only be dictated by the sighting of the moon, it falls on a different day every year. Eid Al Fitr announcements are always met with excitement not just in the UAE but elsewhere in the Muslim and Arab world.
Eid Al Fitr has just been announced by National Imams Council of Australia. The announcement was made by the Grand Mufti of Australia, Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohammed on his Facebook page.
In the post, he shared his official statement stating that June 24 will be the last day of Ramadan, and June 25 - Sunday will be the first day of Shawaal. And hence the first day of Eid Al Fitr. You can read the complete statement below.

In the UAE, a moon sighting committee has been formed to sight the moon after the Maghrib prayers at the Judicial Department in Abu Dhabi.
