Eid Al Adha dates to be announced on Thursday night

Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court is calling on Muslims in the country to look for the new moon on the evening of Thursday, Sept. 1, QNA reports.

If it’s seen, that means the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah has begun, and the first day of Eid Al Adha will be celebrated on Sept. 11.

If there is no new moon, Eid festivities will begin on Sept. 12, as the holiday is always celebrated on the 10th day of that Islamic month.
