Muslims celebrate end of Ramadan in West Springfield

Bukhari said the festival will be celebrated on Saturday as there was no sight of moon anywhere across the country on Thursday.

The met Office said that chances were higher of Eidul Fitr being celebrated on Saturday, June 16 across Pakistan.

Meanwhile, King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman sent cables of greetings to several kings, heads of state, and leaders of Muslim countries on the eve of Eid Al-Fitr. However, the number of days in the month is only established after sighting of the moon.

Beside the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, zonal committees will hold meetings in major cities of the country to collect evidence regarding the sighting of Shawwal moon. If the moon is sighted on 29th, the new month begins the next day.

Muslim faithful, steadfast in observing the holy month of Ramadan this far, now look forward to the signal for celebrations.

"If the crescent is sighted by Muslims of impeccable character on the said evening, His Eminence would declare Friday, 15th June, 2018 as the first day of Shawwal and the day of 'idul fitr".

After the sunset prayer, Muslims gather in their homes or mosques to break their fast with a meal called iftar that is often shared with friends and extended family.

Muslims believe that they are commanded by God, as mentioned in Quran, to continue their fast until the last day of Ramadan and pay the Zakat al-Fitr -a ritual offering- before offering the Eid prayers.
