when is Eid al-Fitr 2023 expected date

Get ready to celebrate Eid al-Fitr 2023, as the expected dates have been revealed! This religious holiday marks the end of the month-long fasting and prayer during Ramadan and the beginning of the Islamic month Shawwal.

The commemoration is expected to be celebrated in Saudi Arabia with a four-day holiday.

In 2023, Ramadan is predicted to fall on Thursday, March 23.


Therefore, Eid al-Fitr is expected to take place on Friday, April 21, immediately after the end of the annual fast. As per the relevant moon sightings, confirmed dates for Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr will only be announced in Saudi Arabia. The exact date of Ramadan’s beginning is determined by religious scholars who observe certain sightings related to the appearance and cycle of the moon, which can vary, typically only by a day or two at most.

After Eid al-Fitr 2023, the next important date in Saudi Arabia’s calendar is Arafat Day, the second day of the week-long Hajj pilgrimage, which is set to take place on June 29.

Saudi Arabia has four public holidays lined up in 2023, including Eid al-Fitr from April 23-25, Arafat Day on June 28, Eid al-Adha from June 29-30, and July 1, and National Day on September 23.

Mark your calendars and get ready to celebrate these important dates in 2023!
