Office of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei has communicated a
statement announcing that Eid al-Fitr prayers will be held by leadership of
Ayatollah Khamenei at 8 am in the morning in Imam Khomeini Mosalla in Tehran.
The exact date of Eid-al-Fitr, the first day of Shawwal, is yet to be determined by groups responsible to monitor appearance of new moon’s crescent in different parts of the country as it depends on the lunar cycle but it is likely to be on Friday.
First day of Islamic month of Shawwal marks Eid al-Fitr, bringing fasting in holy month of Ramadan to an end. Several groups of experts on behalf of office of Ayatollah Khamenei go on final days of each month, especially month of Ramadan, to different regions in country to monitor if they can see new moon’s crescent which marks beginning of each lunar month in Islamic calendar.
