Eid ul-Fitar, a widely celebrated Islamic festival announces the end of almost 30 days of fasting, popularly called as Ramadan. Along with concluding the month of Ramadan, the day of Eid also indicates the commencement of the month of Shawwal.
Eid al-Fitr 2017 will begin in the evening of Sunday , 25 June and ends in the evening of Monday , 26 June Dates may vary.
This day closes the most holy month for Muslims worldwide. A time of feasting, praying and socializing, Eid ul-Fitar does not have a fixed date.
Eid is observed as per the sight of new moon which is why the beginning of any lunar month of Hijri varies every year.
The confusion of when is Eid to be celebrated persists till the very end of the fasting period, as the religious authorities of each locality/nation has the right to declare the final date of celebration according to the sighting of the new moon in the region they are located.
Conventionally the festival is to be observed after the 29th day of Ramadan immediately subsequent to the observance of the crescent moon post the sunset.
However, sometimes due to cloudy sky or the brightness of the sky in the West during the evening causes delay in the vision of the moon.
Delay in sighting the moon shifts the celebration of Eid to the next day.
