Due to no confirmed reports of the sighting of the Hilaal, the United Ulama Council of South Africa (UUCSA) determined that in South Africa, Blessed Ramadan 1445 will end with 30 days, on Wed 10 Apr 2024. The 1st of Shawwal 1445, and the Day of Eid-ul-Fitr will therefore corresponds to Thu 11 Apr 2024, in-sha-Allah.


The Jamiatul Ulama South Africa’s Central Hilaal Committee acts on behalf of UUCSA in the coordination of the sighting of the moon. The next sighting of the moon for the determination of Eid-ul-Fitr and the start of Dhu al Qa’da 1445 shall be after sunset on Thursday 09 May 2024. At sunset in Johannesburg, the Hilâl will be 36 Hours 11 Minutes, in-sha-Allah.


The Jamiatul Ulama South Africa wishes all Muslims the world over accepted ibaadah of Ramadan and and asks Allah to grant us all, a blessed and joyous Eid-ul-Fitr.
