Saudi Arabian officials have announced that the 2021 Dhul Hijjah will start on Sunday, 11 July, 2021.

By implication, this means that Youm Arafah, which signifies the date Prophet Muhammed gave one of his last sermons on Mount Arafah, would be observed on Monday, 19 July 2021 while Eid al Adha would be celebrated in the holy land on 20 July 2021.

The announcement was made after the moon sighting committees could not locate the crescent moon in the sky Friday evening.

Although moon sighting dates may vary from time to time, the Saudi Arabian sightings are officially used by Muslims around the world to plan their holiday.
