Crescent Moon Visibility of Shawwal 1446 AH

The crescent visibility map below for Shawwal 1446 (RHS) shows that the moon will be born on 29 March 2025 at 10:58 GMT/UT, but it will not be visible by the naked eye anywhere in the UK to Morocco region on that date. However, on 30 March 2025, the moon may be easily seen in the UK and in most parts of the world. Hence, the month of Shawwal is most likely to start on 31 March 2025, InShaAllah. Note that there will be a Solar Eclipse on 29 March 2025 in Europe and the Americas and a Lunar Eclipse on 13 - 14 March 2025 across Europe to the Americas.
