According to the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), commencement of Dhul Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar, is anticipated to begin on June 7 or June 8, 2024.

Consequently, Eid-ul-Adha, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, is expected to fall on either June 16 or June 17, 2024.

This announcement is subject to the moon’s visibility after sunset on Thursday, June 6, 2024.

The Deputy Secretary-General of the NSCIA, Prof Salisu Shehu, in a statement, said the council urged the Muslim Ummah to be vigilant for the sighting of the crescent moon marking the start of Dhul Hijjah, the 12th and final month of the Islamic calendar.

According to the statement, “The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) under the leadership of its President-General and Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alh. Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, enjoins the Muslim Ummah in Nigeria to look out for the crescent of Dhul-Hijjah 1445AH after sunset on Thursday, 29th Dhul-Qa’dah 1445AH (i.e., 6th June 2024).

“Scientifically, the expected time for the conjunction of the moon is on Thursday, 6th June 2024 by 1:38 p.m. Nigerian time.
