Sheikh Khalifa exchanges Eid greetings with UAE leaders”

In addition, the government has been advocating the establishment of more Muslim prayer rooms in public places and the celebration of Muslim festivals, she said.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday sent "warm greetings" to Muslims celebrating the end of Ramadan, after his administration broke with the tradition of hosting a White House event to recognize the holy month.

Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated across the country on Monday, Shahi Imam of Delhi's Jama Masjid, Syed Ahmed Bukhari said on Sunday.

Live Update:06:25 pm Eid moon sighting announcement from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh is now a matter of minutes, not hours as the National Moon Sighting Committee of Bangladesh is set for a meeting shortly followed by India and Pakistan.

The sighting of the crescent will mark the end of the month of Ramadan during which Muslims observed fast.

President Trump instead marked Ramadan with an official statement, delivered May 26, the day before the Islamic holy month began. Jamil Khan says, "In the Devon Avenue area it is not just the Muslim shops and eateries that offer Iftar delicacies but nearly every business enterprise runs an Eid special".

Brucaj highlighted that Eid al-Fitr is the day to respect the elderly with gratitude and love, to stand by the people in need of attention, while he wished all believers for such an important day. The Islamic calendar originated when Prophet Mohammat migrated from Mecca to Medina (Hijri) in 622 AD.

Department, there are visible chances of the Eid moon being sighted on June 25 (today). Every year, it becomes shorter by 11 or 12 days.
