BEIRUT: The office of the late Shiite preacher Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah announced Monday that the first day of Eid al-Fitr would be June 28.
In a statement, the office said "June 28 will be the first day of Shawwal, the first day of Eid al-Fitr."
Eid marks the end of the month of Ramadan, during which Muslims fast from dusk to dawn for 30 days.
Ramadan starts roughly 10 days earlier every year, due to the Islamic lunar calendar.
Saudi Arabia and Lebanon's Dar al-Fatwa, the Highest Sunni Council, have yet to announce the first day of Eid. While Shiites began Ramadan on June 28, Sunnis and some Shiites began Ramadan a day after.
