Mumbai: Mumbai and rest of Maharashtra would be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr along with by and large entire India on Monday, it was announced by the Mumbai Hilal Committee today evening.

 

"We have received confirmed reports of moon sighting from various parts of the country including Maharashtra. Based on the moon sighting report from Shrivardhan it is announced that Monday would be the first day of Eid-ul-Fitr", Maulana Burhanuddin Qasmi said to ummid.com on phone after the Hilal Committee meeting.

 

In Malegaon also it was announced by the hilal committees of Jamiat Ahle-Hadees and Jamiatul Ulema that Monday would be the Eid-ul-Fitr and first day of the month of Shawwal.

 

Mumbai and parts of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Rajasthan are the places where people began Ramadan - the holy month of fasting, a day later than other parts of India including Delhi and Hyderabad. These places that have completed thirty days of Ramadan have already announced that they would be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr on Monday.

 

With this, almost entire India - barring Kerala and few cities in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu would be celebrating the Eid on Monday. Kerala, and Bhatkal and Manglore in Karnataka celebrated the Eid on Sunday.

 

Meanwhile, moon sighting confirmations are pouring in from various parts of India. In Pratapgarh, Lucknow and some other parts of Uttar Pradesh and Bangalore in Karnataka the new moon is sighted by the masses.

 

The new moon is also sighted in Sewni, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.

 

Yesterday the hilal committees of Assam, Ruyat-Hilaal Committee of Andhra Pradesh, Imarat-e-Sharia Bihar, Jharkhand and Odhisa also announced that these states would be celebrating the Eid-ul-Fitr on Monday.

In other parts of the world, China celebrated the Eid-ul-Fitr on Saturday whereas Saudi Aarabia, Qatar, Jordan, Egypt, Yemen, Libya and the United Arab Emirates announced on Friday that the Eid-ul-Fitr celebrations would be marked in the Arab states on Sunday. The decision was taken after the new moon could not be seen on Friday.

 

Ramadan fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, alongside the belief in the Oneness of God, the finality of the prophethood of Mohammed, establishment of the daily prayers, concern for and almsgiving to the needy, and the lesser pilgrimage to Makkah for those who are able.

Eid al-Fitr is one of the two biggest Muslim holidays of the year, often compared to Christmas in its significance and revelry. The other major holiday is the sacrificial feast of Eid al-Adha, at the end of the hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Makkah.

In predominantly Muslim countries, the celebration can last for three days. Muslims fill the mosques early in the morning to attend the congregational Eid prayers.
