The conclusion of the holy Islamic month of Ramadan is marked as Eid-ul-Fitr and is a major festival of the Muslim community across the world. The Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on May 3, Tuesday in India as the moon was not sighted on Sunday, stated Gujarat Chand Committee President in a statement. After more than two long years of Covid-19, the festival will be celebrated with high enthusiasm across India this year.
The exact date of Eid-ul-Fitr is decided on the basis of a moon sighting, which is called ‘Chaand Raat’ and the next day to it is celebrated as Eid-ul-Fitr. At mosques across India, the special namaz will be offered on Tuesday morning from 6:30 to 9 and followed by this, the Muslim community will visit each other to wish and celebrate Eid with great fervor.
Notably, Eid-ul-Fitr is a three-day festival but many Islamic countries like UAE declare a week-long holiday during the festival. The festival marks the commemoration of observing month-long fasting from dawn to dusk in the holy month of Ramadan. Eid-ul-Fitr will begin on Tuesday in India, UAE and Saudi Arabia.
