Eid Al Fitr in Qatar is expected to begin on Wednesday, July 6, the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs (Awqaf) has said.

The announcement comes after the High Judiciary Council in Saudi Arabia said that no new moon could be seen tonight.

This means tomorrow will be the last fasting day of the month of Ramadan.

According to authorities, Eid prayers will be held at nearly 300 mosques around the country at 5:03am on Wednesday, which is the first day of Shawwal.

Awqaf has released a list of the prayer spaces in Arabic.
