Usually, the crescent moon of Ramadan and Eid-ul-Fitr is first sighted in Saudi Arabia, UAE and some parts of India along with UK, USA, Australia and some other Western and Gulf countries and then usually a day later in the rest of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and other South Asian countries and after sighting no new moon yesterday, it has been declared that Muslims in Arab states will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on Monday May 2. However, sentiments were running high as Muslims across India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and other South Asian countries geared up to look for the Shawwal crescent - the new moon to mark the end of Ramadan, tonight i.e. May 1.

If the moon is sighted on May 1 evening, Muslims in India and Saudi Arabia will witness the rarest of rare case i.e. celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr on the same date. If the Shawwal crescent moon is not sighted in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and other South Asian countries tonight, May 2 will be observed as the last day of Ramadan 2022 and Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated in these countries on Tuesday May 3. 

As per the latest reports, moon has not been sighted in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

    What are the chances of Shawwal or Eid-ul-Fitr crescent moon being visible in India tonight?

    According to the International Astronomical Centre, Eid Al Fitr 2022 is expected to fall on Monday, May 2 in most Islamic countries and prior to the moon sighting on Saturday, April 30, Mohammad Shawkat Odeh, director of the International Astronomical Centre, had reportedly said that sighting the Shawwal crescent would be impossible because the moon is expected to set before the sun hence, countries that began fasting on April 2 this year, will likely complete 30 days of Ramadan, meaning Eid Al Fitr will start there on May 2.

    As for countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Iran, Oman, Jordan, Morocco and Ghana - that began fasting for Ramadan 2022 from April 3, Mohammad Shawkat Odeh said the crescent of Shawwal will likely be seen on Sunday, May 1. This means Eid in these countries too might be celebrated on May 2, 2022 hence, there is a wafer-thin chance that Muslims in India and other South Asian countries may celebrate this year's Eid-al-Fitr with their Muslim brethren in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, UK, USA and others, if Shawwal crescent moon is sighted tonight.
