Muslims Around The World Including Liberia Celebrate Eid al-Fitr

The meeting would be held at the camp office of the Meteorological Department where evidence of moon sighting would be collected.

Since the Bill Clinton administration, the White House has each year hosted either an event to mark the Eid al-Fitr feast - which ends the fasting month of Ramadan - or a meal breaking the dawn-til-dusk fast, known as an iftar.

"Muslims in the country should stand vigilant against extremist elements", he said.

However many other ways of determining the date also include the actual sighting of the moon or calculating the birth of the new moon.

The Met officials have told that there is a "fair chance" of the crescent of the moon on Sunday at 1438 AH on 29th of Ramadan.

According to the calculations conducted by the Shamakhi-based Tusi Astrophysical Observatory of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS), the 1st of Ramadan-that is, when the moon appears - fell on May 27 this year, APA reported.

"The moon has been sighted in Saudi Arabia".




Most of the Islamic nations like Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Doha, Dubai, Sharjah, Kenya etc will be celebrating Eid tonight.

The mayor is inviting Londoners and others to a celebration of Eid in Trafalgar Square, central London, from noon on Sunday July 2.

The Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) already announced the Eid on June 25th, 2017. The Islamic calendar originated when Prophet Mohammat migrated from Mecca to Medina (Hijri) in 622 AD.

President Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday wished the countrymen on Eid-ul-Fitr, hoping the festival brings prosperity to all and also strengthens "faith in our unity and common destiny" that characterises India's composite culture.

Varying geographical and weather conditions meant that people in different locations can not see the appearance of the crescent the same day, making Muslims around the world fast on different days.

Muslims throughout the celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on first of Shawwal. They will do the donations and supplies gifts to the charities.

The president said the rich and the poor and the elite and the common masses become united on the holy occasion and share the happiness of Eid. This day reflects the compliments among them for completing the long fast successfully.
