Riyadh, Ramadan 27, 1434, Aug 5, 2013, SPA -- The Supreme Court of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia today called on Muslims in the country to monitor the coming out of the new moon of Shawal 2013 to determine the end of current fasting month of Ramadan and advent of Eid Al-Fitr on either at sunset of Tuesday and Wednesday 29 and 30 Ramadan respectively.
If seen by mere eye spotting or by telescopes, the viewer/viewers should report to the nearest court, register his/their testimony or call the nearest government authority to help him/them to reach the nearest court, the Supreme Court said citing the tradition of Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) in this case.
