Saudi Arabia has seen the moon for Dhul Hijjah the Hajj is scheduled on June 15.

The Supreme Court of Saudi Arabia has announced that Thursday, June 7, will be the first day of Dhul Hijjah after the sighting of the moon. This announcement sets important dates for the Islamic calendar. Arafat Day, an important day of Hajj, will be celebrated on Saturday, June 15. The following day, Sunday, June 16, will be Eid al-Adha, an important Islamic holiday. This period marks the beginning of the Hajj season, an important event for Muslims around the world.

On the contrary, the crescent moon was not seen on the same day in Oman. Consequently, they have fixed the beginning of Dhul-Hijjah on Friday, June 8. As a result, Eid al-Adha will be celebrated in Oman on Monday, June 17.One of the five pillars of Islam, the Hajj season begins with the sighting of the crescent moon. Eid al-Adha, a celebration honoring Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son in obedience to God, brings the season to a close. Millions of Muslims from all over the world gather in Mecca during the Hajj season, which has great spiritual significance.

The different results of moon sightings this year between Oman and Saudi Arabia illustrate the differences in the observance of the moon-based Islamic calendar, even though they both culminate in the highly anticipated Hajj and Eid al-Adha.
