Modi greets nation on Eid-ul-Fitr

Modi greets nation on Eid-ul-Fitr”

Since then, presidents have hosted the dinner each year, inviting Muslim cultural leaders, diplomats, and celebrities to join the festivity.

The Eid-el Fitri message reads: "the Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP) led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi's Natonal Caretaker Committee, on behalf of the entire Organs of the Party and its Family nationwide, congratulate Nigerians on the Occasion of the Holy Festival of Eid El-Fitr".

Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari was at the Guards Brigade Mambila Barracks to offer Eid El Fitr Prayers, this morning of 25th June 2017.

"May this joyous occasion, which marks the culmination of the period of fasting and prayer during the holy month of Ramzan, bring happiness, peace and prosperity and be an opportunity to rededicate ourselves to serve humanity", the president said. Fasting in Ramadan, also known as "Roza", is the fourth of the five pillars of Islam.

When is Eid al-Fitr?

Shahi Imam of Delhi's Jama Masjid, Syed Ahmed Bukhari said yesterday that Eid-ul-Fitr would be celebrated as the Eid moon was sighted in Bihar, West Bengal, Assam and Uttar Pradesh. Ramadan and Eid do not fall on the same date each year for the same reason. Now it is time for Eid.

"Eid-El-Fitr Celebration which marks the End of Ramadan Season, affirms man's commitment and total submission to the Will of God".

After the celebrations, Muslims will take the day off from work, or other activities to celebrate with friends and family, gathering for their first meal in over a month.

MORE than 100,000 Muslims gathered in a park in Birmingham for the largest Eid celebration of its kind in Europe yesterday. After a month of the latter, delicacies and heavy foods will reign at the lavish dinners being prepared.
