India will celebrate Eid on May 3

New Delhi ( As the crescent moon was not visible on Sunday evening, Ramadan fasting was extended for another day, and India will celebrate Eid-al-Fitr on Tuesday. Eid, one of the most important Islamic festivals, is observed on Monday in many parts of the world.

Because the Shawwal crescent (moon) was not visible on Sunday evening, May 2 will be observed as the last day of Ramzan, and Eid al-Fitr will be celebrated on May 3. Eid-al-Fitr namaz at Indgah Lucknow will be held on May 03, 2022 at 10 a.m., according to a statement from the Markazi Chand Committee. Due to heavy rain, the moon was not visible in Bengaluru, the state capital, or any other districts in the state, according to the sighting committee in Karnataka. Tamil Nadu’s chief clerics have also announced that Eid-al-Fitr will now be celebrated on Tuesday.

The Supreme Court of Saudi Arabia, as well as moon sighting committees in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan, Morocco, Muscat, Yemen, Sudan, Egypt, Tunisia, Iraq, Syria, Palestine, and other Arab states, have already announced that Muslims will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on Monday. Because the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and European countries rely on the Saudi Arabia Royal Court’s moon announcement, Muslims in those countries will also celebrate Eid with the Gulf states.(HS)
