According to the report, the moon was not sighted in India, Pakistan, New Zealand and Australia, which means that Eid will be celebrated on Saturday, June 16.

The Pakistan Meteorological Department on Thursday said it is unlikely that the Shawal moon will be sighted today.

Sa'ad Abubakar, sultan of Sokoto, has declared Friday as the day for the celebration of eid-el Fitr.

Eid al - Fitr is also an opportunity for families to visit each other and share a delicious breakfast.

The head of state noted that Eid al-Fitr celebrations become a triumph of humanism, unity and equality in Azerbaijani society each year. It marks the end of the Ramadan, the month of fasting and is the only day in the month of Shawwal during which Muslims are not permitted to fast. If the moon can not be seen with the naked eye, the powerful telescopes at the Bangladesh Meteorological Department's disposal assist in confirming the sighting of the moon.

The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee and the zonal committees also gathered the information from all across the country.

The holiday celebrates the conclusion of 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. During this period, Muslim faithful prayed, strived for spiritual growth, scarified and gave time and effort to those in need.

The fast observed by people during the holy month is known as roza and on the last day, people exchange greetings and pleasantries.

Eid in full is, "Eid ul Fitr", it is the first sight of the new moon. The beginning of Ramadan has traditionally been based on "hilal" sightings, which is the traditional method mentioned in the Quran and followed by the Prophet Muhammad. A huge amount of money and food were also donated in the Holy month of Ramadan to help the poor and needy.
