United Kingdom Expects Eid Al Fitr Friday, June 15
Rabat â" The United Kingdom will celebrate Eid Al Fitr on June 15, as the first sight of the new moon is expected to come Thursday evening, as reported by several British outlets citing predictions based on astronomical charts.
If so, Mosques throughout the country will hold Eid Al Fitr prayers on Friday, June 15.
However, the dates for Eid Al Fitr are not usually known until a day or two beforehand, depending on the visibility of the crescent moon.
âMuslims in the UK usually start the day by waking up early and gathering in the local mosque or at an outdoor prayer ground for the Eid morning prayers. People dress in their finest clothes and may adorn their homes with lights and other decorations,â wrote British website âtimeanddate.â
In order to devote themselves to their faith and ultimately become closer to God, Britainâs 2.7 million Muslims have been fasting for about 18 hours between dawn and sunset as Ramadan has fallen in the summer.
