Eid-al-Fitr 2017 Eid Mubarak

In Pakistan, Eid al-Fitr holidays last three days while Indians get just one day for Eid al-Fitr on Monday, June 26.

Fasting is the one the five pillars of Islamic, Muslims must abstain from food, drink, smoking and marital relationships and also avoid all immoral and sinful behaviour between dawn and dusk. Most Muslims residing in the United States will celebrate on Sunday.

For example, authorities in Saudi Arabia - the birthplace of Islam, and dominated by Sunni Muslims - announce the start and end of Ramadan depending on testimonies of members of the public who observe the Moon by sight.

Muslims in most countries rely on news of an official sighting of the new Moon, rather than looking at the sky themselves.

On the day of the festival, worshippers wake up early and offer Salat ul-Fajr (daily prayers). Eid al-Fitr is a joyous occasion but its underlying goal is to praise God and give thanks to him, according to Islamic belief.

The day is set when a new moon is spotted - but there is little agreement within the faith about whether the moon must be spotted with the naked eye or if it should be seen in the country where the celebrations are occurring.

It is a time when we take stock of all the lessons we have learned over the holy month of Ramadan, as we mark its passing with our family and friends.

"As such, I am pleasedto declare that the first day of Syawal for the year 1438 Hijrah falls on Sunday, 25th June 2017", Dr Mohamed Fatris Bakaram Mufti, Republic of Singapore said in a statement released Saturday.

Turkey and Muslim communities in North America, Europe and Australia had previously announced they would celebrate Eid ul-Fitr from Sunday, 25th June based on astronomical calculations. They also eat a hearty breakfast before heading off to perform special congregational prayers known as Salat al-Eid (Eid prayers).

In contrast, if the moon is not sighted on June 25, Muslims in the country will fast for another day and celebrate Eid on Tuesday, June 27. Eid is celebrated during the first day of Shawaal.
