Salamun alaikum,
We are forwarding a statement of Ulema about moon sighting, according to which for the Muqallideen of Ayatullah al Uzema Syed Ali Sistani and Ayatullah al Uzema Syed Ali Khamenei, tomorrow Wednesday is the 30th of Mahe Ramadhan and Thursday 2nd October will be Eid (1st Shawwal 1429).
Please accept Eid Mubarak beforehand. May Allah (s.w.t.) accept our duas during the Holy Month of Ramadhan and keep all Shias of the world safe and sound from the enemies of Shias. 
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Unanimous Statement of Ulema on Sighting Hilal of Shawwal 1429 A.H.
By His Name The Most High
All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds, and peace and blessings be upon Prophet Mohammad and his pure and chaste household.
A number of Ulema in the United Kingdom gathered to discuss the Hilal of Shawwal 1429 A.H. Their conclusion is as follows:
Based on opinions of Grand Maraji' stipulating Unity of Horizons
The sighting of the moon crescent and related information from nearby regions was researched. There is no evidence, according to Shari'a, of any sighting on Tuesday evening 30 September 2008 in the UK and/or corresponding horizons.
Therefore Wednesday (1st October) will be the last day of Ramadhan and Thursday 2nd October will be the 1st day of Shawwal 1429A.H.
According to Opinions of Grand Maraji' NOT stipulating Unity of Horizons
If the followers have proof of sighting the moon crescent in regions sharing the night [with their region] then they can apply this ruling to determine Eid [before Thursday 2 October 2008]
On this blessed occasion of Eid Al-Fitr , we convey our congratulations and Tabreekat to all Muslims, asking Allah (swt) that they witness this Eid, again, with blessings and benevolence for He  is the grantor of success.
