Saudi Arabia is preparing to welcome Eid ul Adha 2021, the second largest festival of the Muslim community. In the Indian subcontinent, Eid-ul-Adha is also called Bakra Eid. Also, every Muslim celebrates this festival on the 10th day of the month of Dhi Al-Hijjah. However, The Saudi committee will announce the exact date of Eid al-Adha in Saudi Arabia after the sighting of the moon.
In the Islamic lunar calendar, the 29th and 30th days of each month are completed depending on the moon’s appearance. A new month begins on the 29th day of this month after seeing a crescent moon. Therefore, if the moon remains hidden on the 29th, the current month completes 30 days, and a new month begins the next day.
Eid ul Adha this year in Saudi Arabia:
To start the month of Hajj, Muslims in Saudi Arabia will try to see a new moon on July 10, 2021. If the new moon appears on July 10, Eid ul Adha 2021 will occur on July 20, 2021 (10th of Dhul-Hijjah). If the crescent moon does not appear on July 10 and the month of Dhul-Hijjah will begin on July 12, then the Eid-ul-Adha will fall on July 21.
Moreover, Saudi Moonsighting committee is expecting that Eid-ul-Adha in KSA will either fall on July 20 or July 21, 2021. According to Saudi Arabia’s Umm al-Qura calendar, Eid al-Adha will occur on July 20, 2021.
