Saudi Arabia's Moon sighting committee has announced that the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr would be on Thursday, May 13, 2021, as the Shawwal Moon had not been sighted earlier tonight.

Recall that, earlier this month, the upcoming Saudi public sector holidays for the Eid al Fitr were announced as beginning on Ramadan 25 (May 7) ending on Shawwal 5 (May 17), by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (2021-05-05).

In a separate announcement, the 2021 End of Ramadan holidays for the Saudi private sector were set to run from May 11, for 4 consecutive days, as was the case last year (2020-05-14).
