Muslims from most parts of Pakistan and world are celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr today (June 5) with religious fervor. Strict security measures have also been ensured for safety of the people.
A day earlier, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa celebrated the that Eid-ul-Fitr on June 4 after taking into account ‘testimonies’ of moon sighting all over KP. Eid al-Fitr is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.
This religious Eid is the first and only day in the month of Shawwal during which Muslims are not permitted to fast. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. The day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month of Shawwal.
