Happy Eid Mubarak

June 4, 2019

Eid Mubarak: after nearly a month of fasting during Ramadan, Muslims are holding celebrations across all over the world to mark the official date of Eid al-Fitr.


EID AL FITR is a huge celebration in the Islamic calendar, commemorating the end of the month of Ramadan. But when does Ramadan end? Is Eid al Fitr today?

 

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic Calendar and the holiest, filled with extra prayer, fasting and charitable deeds.

 

The month begins when the crescent Moon is sighted, and this can vary from country to country. It ends when a month later the crescent Moon is spotted - and the festival of Eid al Fitr begins.

 

But when does Ramadan end?

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic Calendar and the holiest, filled with extra prayer, fasting and charitable deeds.

 

The month begins when the crescent Moon is sighted, and this can vary from country to country. It ends when a month later the crescent Moon is spotted - and the festival of Eid al Fitr begins.

 

The end of Ramadan depends on which day was regarded as the start date. For people observing the crescent Moon sighting in the holy city of Mecca, Ramadan began on Monday, May 6.

 

For those who waited for the Moon to be spotted in the UK, Morocco and other countries, Ramadan began on Tuesday, May 7. This means for Mecca Moon sightings, Ramadan ends and Eid begins on Tuesday, June 4, whilst those a day later will celebrate Eid on Wednesday, June 5.

What does it mean Eid Mubarak?

Eid al Fitr, also known as Eid ul Fitr, is a celebration to end the fast and is commemorated with attending mosque, visiting family and friends and indulging in traditional foods.

 

One such treat is a sugar cookie known as kahk al Eid, which often have stamped designs on the top and contain either pistachios, walnuts or dates.

 

Lights and decorations are placed around homes, including candles, lanterns and festive banners.
