Chaguanas Mayor urges Muslims: Use Eid to build a better TT

Sultan bin Saeed Al Badi Al Dhaheri, the UAE's Minister of Justice, issued a decision today to set up a moon-sighting committee to detect the beginning of the month of Shawwal. The lunar cycle is used to calculate the Islamic Hijri era and this year's Ramadan was observed at a different time across India, as the moon was not been visible in some parts of the country.

Chaguanas Mayor Gopaul Boodhan yesterday urged citizens to use the month of Ramadan, Eid ul-Fitr celebrations and its message of self-sacrifice to build a happier, stronger nation.

He congratulated the Muslim faithful on the successful completion of the Ramadan.

ABUJA-The Federal Government has declared Friday, June 15, and Monday, June 18, as public holidays to mark the Eid-il Fitr.

On the other hand, officials in the federal government are hoping that this year Eidul Fitr will be celebrated across Pakistan on same day just as Ramazan had started on the same date.

The National Motorway Company of Morocco (ADM) recommends drivers plan their trip in advance to avoid traffic jams during Eid al-Fitr.

The Islamic calendar is determined by moon phases making each month last either 29 or 30 days. During Eid al-Fitr 2018, many will wake up early to pray at a mosque or outdoor prayer venue and engage for some sweet dishes especially, Seviyan preparations.
