Muslims to celebrate Eid-al-Fitr tomorrow

Must read

Ugandan Muslims and the entire world will celebrate the joyous occasion of Eid al-Fitr tomorrow on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, after the crescent moon was not sighted on Monday evening.

The announcement was made by the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) after the moon sighting committee reported negative results on Monday evening.

“After careful assessments and consultations with moon sighting committees throughout Uganda, it has been confirmed that the crescent moon has not been sighted this evening, therefore, Eid al-Fitr will be celebrated on Wednesday, April 10th,” Dr. Sheikh Ziyad Swaleh Lubanga, Director of Sharia at UMSC said in a brief statement to the Muslim community on Monday evening.

Sheikh Lubanga’s announcement came just hours after the World Muslim leadership in Saudi Arabia made a similar proclamation moments ago, urging believers to spend the remaining days of the auspicious month doing good deeds.

Eid al-Fitr, also known as the “Festival of Breaking the Fast,” is celebrated on the ninth day of Ramadan, the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. Ramadan is a time for fasting, prayer, and introspection.

On Wednesday morning, worshippers are expected to gather at various mosques around the nation for special Eid prayers, while families will prepare customary meals, exchange blessings, and spend time together.

This joyous occasion, marked by feasting, family reunions, and gift-giving, is always eagerly awaited by Muslims to mark the end of the Ramadan fasting period.
