[www.inewsguyana.com] – Muslims across Guyana will be celebrating Eid – ul – Fitr, which marks the completion of fasting the blessed month of Ramadan, which is the fourth pillar of Islam.
The religious Eid is a single day during which Muslims are not permitted to fast. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan.
The day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month of Shawwal. This is a day when Muslims around the world show a common goal of unity.
The date for the start of any lunar Hijri month varies based on the observation of new moon by local religious authorities, so the exact day of celebration varies by locality.
