Just as festivity becomes the atmosphere when the fast is broken each day at sunset, happiness becomes doublefold when the month of fasting is finally completed and the Eid Al-Fitr is celebrated.

The most elaborate dishes are served at large banquets to which relatives and friends are invited. These  colorful celebrations are the climax of the sense of fulfillment characterizing,a month of fasting and hardships, increasing the bonds of connectedness among humankind and between humankind and God.

Yesterday we could not sight the new Moon Crescent because it was impossible. As you see in the picture below, the Sun and Moon almost sets at the same time and the elevation is only 5 degrees.

May Allah accepts our fasting, prayers and bless us all. Ameen.

  1. Yes…the month of Ramadhan has been a prominent one here too…the local community has been invited to join in the celebrations at an “Eid in the Park” event🙂 I think this a cool idea, it caters for all age groups and brings people together, as well as promoting a better understanding and happier relationships between all🙂
