Syria: Eid starts on Friday

September 8th, 2010 · No Comments · Culture

The top religious judge in Damascus, Adel Bunduk, has declared that Eid will start on Friday in Syria.

That is in line with Saudi Arabia and most of the Arab World. That means for the first time in years, the majority of the region started and ended Ramadan at the same time. The decision on when to declare the beginning and end of the Holy Month is usually decided on a political basis, with rival nations choosing different days.
