After Eid-ul-Fitr, Fawad Ch announces date for Eidul Azha 2019
"Now that the argument over this Eid has ended, what are the [dates] for the next two most important Islamic days, i.e., Eidul Azha and [beginning of] Muharram: According to the Hijri calendar, Eidul Azha will fall on Monday, Aug 12 while Muharram will [start] from Sunday, Sept 1," Chaudhry said in a tweet.
چلئے اب اس عید کی بحث ختم ، اب اگلے دو اہم اسلامی دن یعنی عید الاضحیٰ اور محرم کب ہیں ، ھجری کیلنڈر کے مطابق عید الا ضحیٰ سوموار 12 اگست 2019 اور محرم یکم ستمبر 2019 بروز اتوار کو ہو گا۔— Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) June 6, 2019
The dates have been derived from the lunar calendar that was launched by the Ministry for Science and Technology last month in order to end the controversies over the sighting of the moon for Islamic months.
The calendar, which can be accessed through Pakistan's first official moonsighting website as well as a mobile application, The Ruet, indicates scientifically determined dates for all major Islamic festivals/days for the ongoing and next years.
