The largest number of Muslims in Europe are based in the UK, forming 5 per cent of the population. While most among the Muslims in the Great Britain, Germany, Belgium and France are migrants from South Asia, the European nations of Spain, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina house ethnic caucasian Muslims.

Chechnya, the once militancy-hit region of Russia, is predominantly a Muslim autonomous region. Meanwhile, in the United States, Muslim form less than 1 per cent of the population.

A large section of Muslims in Europe and US await the decision taken by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). As seen over the past decades, several Muslims living in the West align their dates of Eid celebration with KSA.

The International Crescent Observation in United Kingdom (ICOUK), a group of Muslim researchers and ulemas, have appealed people to not to follow the dates of Middle East in a blind-sided manner. Instead, it has appealed the local populace to attempt sighting the moon between Asr and Maghrib prayers and submit their testament to the local mosque authorities in case of sighting the crescent. ICOUK has deployed its personnel in all parts of Britain to attempt spotting the moon this evening.
