20 April 2023
According to astronomical calculations, the crescent for the month of Syawal did not appear this evening after sunset. This signifies that tomorrow will be the end of 30 days of Ramadan.
As such, I am pleased to announce that the first day of Syawal or Hari Raya Aidilfitri for year 1444H falls on Saturday, 22 April 2023.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all Muslims in Singapore “Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri”. I seek your forgiveness for any shortcomings. May our Muslim community stay united in overcoming all challenges with compassion and empathy.
