Despite some of the Masaajid in the locality of Swindon already declaring Eid before the sun has even set, we at Al-habib Islamic Centre will make an official announcement after Magrib prayers. This is due to some of the technicality involved in sighting the moon. Its not possible to make an announcement before then. For more information you can contact the Islamic Centre on 01793 489896 or 07824997687.
**Update** due to the moon not be sighted anywhere within the UK or anywhere to east of the UK we will be competing the full 30th days of Ramadan with Allah’s blessings and Eid-ul-Fitr will be on Wednesday 31st August 2011 at 9.30AM.
