A global celebration marking the end of Ramadan, characterized by cultural diversity, joyful gatherings, and spiritual significance

Eid-Al-Fitr, also known as Eid al-Fitr, signifies the conclusion of the revered month of Ramadan. Anticipated to occur on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, Eid-Al-Fitr's timing relies on the sighting of the crescent moon.

While the Western world adheres to the Gregorian calendar, the Islamic calendar follows the lunar cycle. This entails that the Islamic calendar is governed by the observation of the crescent moon. Throughout the day, Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, engaging in Quran recitations and prayers.
