Media Statement - Declaration of the Month of Syawal for Singapore ENG

KENYATAAN MEDIA

4 July 2017

According to astronomical calculations, the crescent for the month of Syawal did not appear during sunset today as it has set earlier than 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 1437 Hijrah falls on Wednesday, 6th July 2016.

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

Thank you. Wassalamualaikum Wr Wb.
