Though there is no official announcement on the moon sighting in Saudi Arabia, The News reported that Eid may be celebrated in the Kingdom on Tuesday.

The date of Eid ul-Fitr typically varies from country to country, depending on whether the moon has been spotted. The lunar cycle is used to calculate the Islamic Hijri era and this year’s Ramadan was observed at a different time across India, as the moon was not visible in some parts of India. As has been the case many times in the past, Eid is celebrated on separate days across the country.
