Oman has announced Eid al Fitr 2024 holiday dates for the public and private sector, reported state news agency ONA.

Those working in the public and private sector will mark the Eid al Fitr holiday from April 9.

Work will resume Sunday, April 14 as Oman has a Sunday to Thursday workweek with the weekends on Friday and Saturday.

Eid al Fitr dates for Oman

According to astronomical data, there is a high probability that the first day of Eid al Fitr will be observed on April 10 in Oman, noted Abdulwahab al Busaidy, head of Observatory at Oman Astronomical Society.

Al Busaidy was quoted by Oman Observer, and provided insights into the expected date, stating, “There is a 99.9 per cent chance that Eid al Fitr will fall on Wednesday, April 10.”

He further explained the basis for this prediction, noting that the crescent moon will be visible on April 9 shortly after sunset, paving the way for Eid celebrations the following day.

Importantly, this forecast aligns with expectations across neighbouring and other Islamic and Arab countries. Al Busaidy emphasised, “My expectation is that most Muslim countries will celebrate Eid al Fitr on April 10.”
