Saudi Arabia announces Jul 31 as first day of Eid-ul-Azha

Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court said on Monday (Jul 20) the Day of Arafat will be on Jul 30 (Thursday) and Jul 31 (Friday) will be the first day of Eid-ul-Azha.

The court said that Jul 21 (Tuesday) is the 30th of Dhul Qadah, and Jul 22 (Wednesday) will mark the first day of Dhul Hijjah. Accordingly, Eid-ul-Azha will be on Jul 31 (Friday), Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said.

The announcement follows confirmation by a moon-sighting committee formed to determine the beginning of the last month of the Islamic calendar.

The decision was made after the committee received reports from regional courts and moon-sighting committees.
