Iran declares Tuesday as Eid al-Fitr

The office of the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has declared Tuesday as Eid al-Fitr.

The office’s headquarters tasked with moon sighting at the end of the holy month of Ramadan said Monday is the 30th of the month of Ramadan as the crescent of the moon of the lunar month of Shawwal was not observed in the sky.

The office of Iraq’s top Shia authority Ayatollah Ali Sistani also said Monday is not Eid al-Fitr.

Following the announcement of Tuesday as Eid, Monday is not a holiday in Iran and all state organizations are open.
