Met Office Reveals Expected Eid ul Fitr 2024 Date in Pakistan

The forecast by the Pakistan Meteorological Department sets April 11, 2024, as the likely date for Eid ul-Fitr, one of Pakistan’s significant Islamic festivals. This prediction is based on the start of Ramadan on March 12, with a 30-day fasting period leading up to Eid ul-Fitr. According to the forecast, the Shawwal moon is expected to be sighted on April 10, which aligns with the anticipated start of Eid celebrations.

However, it’s important to note that Islamic festival dates, including Eid ul-Fitr, are subject to change based on the sighting of the moon. The Ruet Hilal committee, responsible for moon sighting, will officially announce the Eid holidays on April 10, 2024. This emphasizes the reliance on traditional methods of moon sighting to determine religious events’ timing, rather than solely relying on meteorological forecasts.

The Cabinet Division has already shared a holiday schedule, indicating off days from April 10 to April 12 for Eid ul-Fitr. This aligns with the expected dates but remains contingent upon the official moon sighting announcement.
