    Islamic Council of North America declares Eid in the United States of America. The council said, “The Astronomical New Moon is on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 2:33 Universal Time. On that day, somewhere close to South Africa at sunset the elongation is 8 degrees and moon is 5 degrees above the sun. Therefore, first day of Shawwal 1438 is on Sunday, June 25, 2017, insha’Allah.”

Singapore, June 24: Eid al-Fitr which is the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal, marks the end of Ramzan, a month when Muslims across the world fast from dawn to dusk. Muslims living in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei and many other parts of the region are likely to celebrate Eid al-Fitr on Sunday if the moon is sighted today evening. In these countries, it is 29th day of the holy month of Ramzan also known as Ramadan and most of the people living there will start looking for Eid al-Fitr moon after opening their fast. Some astronauts have also predicted that the moon in Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei and Malaysia will be visible in some parts of Asia on Saturday.

People from different faith and races get involved in the practice and the same applies to Muslims living nationwide. Several mosques around Indonesia have been lighted completely to celebrate Eid al-Fitr and Muslims living there will also complete their shopping today. The government has also made special arrangements during Eid al-Fitr to make sure that the festival in the country ends peacefully.
