Assalaamu alaikum,

Following the announcement from the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA), Eid-ul-Fitr will be on Sunday May 24, 2020, insha'Allah.

The announcement from FCNA is as follows:

 

Eid-ul-Fitr 1441 AH:
The Astronomical New Moon is on Friday, May 22, 2020 at 17:40 Universal Time. On that day there is no place on earth where at sunset the elongation is 8 degrees and moon is 5 degrees above the sun. Therefore Shawwal 1441 cannot start the next day. Hence first day of Shawwal is on Sunday, May 24, 2020, insha’Allah.
