The day of Arafah - the main day of Hajj - is expected to be on Friday, October 3, 2014 and so the Eidul Adha 1435 is expected on Saturday, October 4, 2014, says an announcement of The Fiqh Council of North America.

Following its adopted current criteria for Eidul Adha, the Fiqh Council of North America and the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California announce that the final determination of the date of Eidul Adha will be contingent on the announcement by the Hajj authorities in Makkah of the day of 'Arafah, in which case Eidul Adha will be the day following the day of Arafah, the announcement adds.
