Happy Eid Mubarak Status Images, Eid ul-Fitr Wishes Messages, Eid al Fitr Timing in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Saudi Arabia: Like every year, Muslims around the world are preparing to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr. The event, which literally means “Feast of the Breaking of the Fast”, serves to mark the end of Ramadan, a holy month that is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, during which believers abstain from drinking and eating from dawn to dusk.
Eid ul-Fitr is celebrated on the first day of the following month, which is called Shawwal. According to sources, this year Eid al Fitr will be observed on 2nd May 2022. There is some debate as to whether the idea of moon viewing should refer you to physically observing the moon in your area, which can be constrained by factors such as weather conditions
Is Eid ul-Fitr Sunday or Monday?
Traditionally, Ramadan begins a day after the sighting of the crescent, which usually appears a night after the new moon, meaning that the start date cannot be accurately estimated. Eid ul-Fitr works in exactly the same way, with the new crescent appearing, marking the end of Ramadan and the beginning of the month of Shawwal, with the latest calculation of the moon sighting estimated as Eid ul-Fitr will be celebrated on Monday, 2 May.
This year Ramadan lasts for 30 days, sometimes it can last as long as 29. As a bonus for those celebrating Eid, this is the date for the spring holidays, which means many people will have a day’s work for the festivities. Amavasya was on Saturday 30th April at 9:28 pm, but according to sources not visible anywhere in the world till Sunday 1st May.
What is Eid ul-Fitr?
The name of this Islamic festival translates as the Feast of the Breaking of the Fast and is a celebration that marks the end of the month-long fasting of Ramadan. Eid-ul-Fitr starts the day after the end of Ramadan. It is known as Choti Eid, as the celebration usually lasts for three days. Which is one day less than the other Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha, or the ‘Great Eid’.
This Eid is considered a spiritual celebration of the gift of Allah’s strength and endurance that enables Muslims to overcome the Ramadan fast. It is a time of charity, known as Zakat ul-Fitr, and people are expected to give to the poor, whether by donating money, food or time. Unlike the previous 30 days, fasting is forbidden on the day of Eid.

Eid celebrations begin with the morning prayers, which usually take place in the mosque. However, the lockdown restrictions may affect the number of people allowed in the place of worship. After the prayer, Muslims celebrate in various ways, members of the community gather to share rich and sweet food and celebrate together.
Muslims are expected to wear their best clothes for the celebration, and many women also apply henna to their hands to mark the celebration. The holiday is also an exciting time for Muslim children as older relatives or family friends are required to offer them Eidiyas or gifts. Money is usually given, but children often receive other gifts such as toys.

When does Ramadan end?
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and one of the holiest months of the year for Muslims, during which they fast for 29 to 30 days. This is because Muslims believe that during this month, the Islamic holy book, the Quran, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad on a night called Lailat-ul-Qadr, or the Night of the Decree. This year, the fasting season was expected to end on Sunday, May 1, but it has changed depending on the sighting of the moon and is now on May 2.
When is Eid al-Adha 2022?
Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of the Sacrifice, falls later in the summer and honours Abraham’s desire to sacrifice his son to Allah. It is celebrated on the tenth day of Dhi al-Hijjah, the twelfth and last month of the Islamic calendar. Its exact date is determined after the sighting of the crescent moon. Just like Eid-ul-Fitr, the date of the great Eid also varies from year to year.
This year, it is expected to start on July 9, though it may vary across the world. It is also the time of year when many Muslims make a five-day pilgrimage to the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia, known as the Hajj. All Muslims who can make the pilgrimage must visit Mecca at least once in their lives to pray in front of the Kaaba, the holiest shrine in the religion.
