The Muslim month of Ramazan is in full swing. Muslim’s in Pakistan are fasting and patiently awaiting Eid, therefore, we have some good news for them. An Arab astronomer has said that the Eid ul Fitr this year will fall on the June 15, which is a Friday. This year, the month of Ramazan is expected to run for 29 days.
As indicated by local media, Ebrahim Al Jarwan, General Supervisor at Sharjah Planetarium, he will start watching the sky from June 13 to detect the crescent. Be that as it may, we hope to see it after the dusk of June 14, he was quoted as saying to the media outlets. Muslims in Pakistan this year began fasting from May 17, that day their kindred Muslims in the majority of the Arab nations started fasting. The KP government this year has also declared to fast and celebrate Eid with the rest of the country.
There is no expectation so far about when the Eid is relied upon to fall in the Islamic republic of Pakistan where a Central Ruet-e-Hial Committee, a moon locating board, announce the sighting of crescent after collecting evidence from regional committees and independent sightings.
The period of Ramazan generally starts with another moon locating, denoting the beginning of the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. Amid this period, Muslims keep quick refuse food, drink, and other certain exercises amid light hours.
Ramazan closes when the principal bow of the new moon is located once more. Eid-ul-Fitr is the Islamic occasion that denotes the finish of Ramazan.
