Eid al Fitr 2015: Significance, History And Lesser Known Facts About The Biggest Islamic FestivalReuters

Ramadan is nearing its end and Muslims around the world are preparing for Eid al-Fitr celebrations. The biggest part of Eid al-Fitr celebration is offering special prayers early after sunrise. While the Eid al-Fitr date still hasn't been announced in India, timings for the congressional prayers have already been announced by various mosques and Eidgahs.

Eid al-Fitr will be celebrated on Friday, June 15, in most Islamic countries, according to astronomical predictions. The Islamic committees are yet to confirm whether Muslims will fast for 29 days or 30 days before celebrating Eid this year. If Eid al-Fitr falls on Saturday, June 16, then Muslims will get 30 days of fasting.

In India, Eid al-Fitr could fall on either day. It will be confirmed by 9 p.m. on Thursday, but mosques have already announced the timings when the Eid prayers will be offered. Muslims can check with their local mosque for details on accurate timings for Eid prayers and also about the Eidgah locations and respective timings.
