FG Declares Friday, Monday Public Holidays To Mark Eid-El-Fitr

FG declares holidays to mark Id-el Fitr

After a month of fasting and sacrifice, Muslims will celebrate Eid ul-Fitr after sighting of the moon which will officially end the month of Ramzan. This week, after the sighting of the moon, Muslims will mark the end of the holiest month in the Islamic calendar and start the lunar month Shawwal. The private sector receives two holiday days for Eid, which means either Friday and Saturday will be off, or Saturday and Sunday. The first day of Shawwāl is Eid al-Fitr. Now, that Eid ul-Fitr is around the corner, it is quite probable that the moon sighting problem will persist yet again.

The committee will be tasked with the job of spotting the new crescent moon which signals the arrival of Eid Al Fitr. It translates into "the feast of breaking the fast". The countries will observe the new moon on Thursday. The crescent moon appears only for a few minutes on the first day of the month and if people miss the chance to spot it, they have to rely on sources from other cities.

However, Eid holidays will begin from June 15 to June 18, the interior ministry had said in a statement.
