The crescent of Dhul Hijjah will stay on in the sky of Makkah for about 51 minutes in the evening of Tuesday, July 21 and accordingly, Wednesday (July 22) will mark the first day of Dhul Hijjah and Friday (July 31) will be the first day of Eid Al-Adha, he said while noting that the Umm Al-Qura calendar also confirms this.
