Announcement of Beginning of Syawal 2019

DECLARATION OF THE MONTH OF SYAWAL 1440H (2019) FOR SINGAPORE

According to astronomical calculations, the crescent for the month of Syawal did not appear during sunset today as it had set at the same time as the sun. This signifies that tomorrow will be the end of 30 days of Ramadan.

As such, I am pleased to declare that the first day of Syawal for the year 1440 Hijrah falls on Wednesday, 5 June 2019.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all Muslims in Singapore: “Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri”. May Allah accept all our deeds throughout Ramadan and may we be given the opportunity to welcome Ramadan again next year.
