Ethiopian Muslims celebrate Eid-al Fitr

The observance made a comeback nearly 200 years later, when then-First Lady Hillary Clinton in 1996 threw an Eid al-Fitr reception for about 150 people.

"Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated tomorrow as the Eid moon was sighted in Bihar, West Bengal, Assam and Uttar Pradesh today", Bukhari added.

In lieu of the festivities hosted throughout the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations, the President and First Lady released a statement Saturday sending "warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr", the day marking the end of Ramadan.

Ramadan also shares another similarity with Christmas.

It is pertinent to mention here that Shawwal 2017 moon was sighted yesterday in Saudi Arabia, Gulf countries including USA, UK, Germany, Turkey, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Japan.

On Friday, the mosque opened its doors for the nationwide campaign "fast with a Muslim friend", which aims to teach non-Muslims about the significance of fasting during Ramadan. Ramadan is one of the five Pillars of Islam, requiring prayer five times a day and generally encouraging a more reflective behavior.

United States coalition in first downing of Syrian army plane
Australia lifted a suspension on military air missions over Syria imposed after the shooting down of a Syrian jet by U.S. forces. This comes less than 3 weeks after a similar incident and just days after the US shot down a Syrian fighter jet.

"It has been unanimously agreed by all members of the central and zonal ruet-e-hilal committees that Monday, 1438 hijri, is the first day of Eid across the country", he said.

According to the fatwa of Gazi Council of the Caucasian Muslims Office (CMO), Eid al-Fitr will be celebrated on June 26 - the 1st of Shawwal with the appearance of moonrise in our territory.

Reports from London said new moon could not be sighted anywhere in United Kingdom on Saturday.

Following the announcement, people hit the street for last minute shopping of groceries, new clothes, footwear and other items for celebrating Eid.

Food is an important part of Eid al-Fitr, as feasting takes the place of fasting.
