Weather of Arabia - Nine countries celebrate Eid al-Adha on Monday, June 17, 2024, including two Arab countries, in contrast to most Arab and Islamic countries that set the Arafat pause and Eid al-Adha on the previous day, and this difference is due to the methods of seeing the crescent of the month of Dhul-Hijjah. Some countries rely on Sharia vision, while other countries rely on astronomical calculations. Therefore, most countries in the Arab and Islamic world, including Jordan and Saudi Arabia, celebrated Eid al-Adha on Sunday, June 16, 2024.

Countries that celebrated Eid al-Adha on Monday:

  • The Arab world: Morocco, Oman
  • Asia: Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Iran
  • Africa: Ghana

The reason for the difference in the date of Eid al-Adha

The difference in the date of Eid al-Adha is due to the sighting of the crescent of the Hijri month on the 29th of each month, and in some places it may not be seen, so the Hijri month becomes 30 days.

The official bodies in the Sultanate of Oman and Morocco announced that it was not possible to see the crescent of the blessed month of Dhu al-Hijjah on Thursday, June 6, 2024, and thus the beginning of the blessed month was on Saturday, June 8, 2024, thus different from most Arab and Islamic countries.
