Abu Dhabi: The UAE moon-sighting committee will meet on Saturday, September 19, to examine the data collected by moon-sighting experts to announce the first day of Shawwal. Chaired by Dr Hadef Jua'an Al Daheri, Minister of Justice, the panel wil...l examine at the Judiciary Department Abu Dhabi, the findings of crescent monitoring for the month of Shawwal to declare the first day of Eid Al Fitr

From Gulf News

If it is agreed that the moon will be sighted tonight then the month of Shawwal has started and Ramadan is over. Eid can start as the Islamic "day" starts at sunset and not at midnight as in west.

Yeah I read that stuff too, but it never really comes out and says Ramadan will end this day.
But from Gulf News does that mean if the moon is sighted tonight, then tomorrow Sunday we can eat and drink or whatever we want all day?

Dear Mr Big,
Yes If the committee declares moon sighting then tomorrow is Eid . So it means Ramadan Ends and the restriction on eating / drinking will automatically ceased.

Otherwise you have to wait one more day as tomorrow the committee will not sit and day after tomorrow shall Eid.
