If the new moon is spotted, Eid al-Fitr will begin on Friday, July 17 (the first day of the Islamic month of Shawal). If no moon is observed, Friday will be the last fasting day, and Eid will begin on Saturday, July 18.
Based on whether the new moon is spotted, fasting will begin either Saturday or Sunday in Qatar. Ramadan here generally means shortened work hours for more residents, and a prohibition on drinking/eating in public during the day.
