Muslims Around The World Including Liberia Celebrate Eid al-Fitr

The White House's tradition of holding an annual iftar dinner for Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, began under the Clinton administration, which first hosted the event in 1996. Eid is the first and only day in the month of Shawwal during which Muslims are not permitted to fast.

Regardless, Eid al-Fitr is a celebration and a chance to spend time with family and friends.

'This holiday marks the culmination of Ramadan, a month in which many experience meaning and inspiration in acts of fasting, prayer, and charity'.

Bangladesh, Pakistan, India will be sighting the moon on Sunday.

Eid-al-Fitr is that only day of Shawwal that Muslims are not permitted to fast and many chose to fast for further six days after Eid.

It always occurs in the ninth month of the lunar calendar, she said, which means it occurs two weeks earlier with each coming year.

As the auspicious month of Ramadan starts, may the crescent-shaped moon brighten your path toward enlightenment and may Allah bless you with peace and grace.

"This is the most painful, the most sorrowful occasion, Eid al-Fitr, that we have experienced for the last hundreds of years", said Zia Alonto Adiong, a spokesman for the provincial crisis committee.

Here's my warm wishes to you on the celebration of Eid.

Saudi Arabia, Malayasia, Indonesia and the United Arab Emirates have all declared Sunday as day one of Eid al Fitr 1438. These countries started Ramzan on May 28 and so tomorrow will be the 29th of Ramzan for them. Muslims follow some rules in Ramadan.

Islam21c can confirm that 'Eid al-Fitr 1438 will be on Sunday - corresponding to 25 June 2017 - based on multiple eye-witness testimonies. The festival is celebrated by the 1.6 billion Muslims across the globe.
