Eid al-Fitr 2024: ‘Eid Mubarak!’ echoes throughout as the crescent moon signals the arrival of Eid-ul-Fitr 2024, a wave of joy fills the hearts, and spirits lift in jubilation, embodying the warmth and unity of this special moment.

Eid ul-Fitr is a significant festival celebrated on the first day of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic lunar calendar.

It holds great importance as it marks the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting and spiritual reflection, and signifies the beginning of a new Islamic year.

The tradition of moon sighting, a practice dating back to the time of Prophet Muhammad, plays a central role in determining the start of Eid ul-Fitr. Different regions may celebrate Eid on different days due to variations in moon sightings, typically with a one-day difference.
