Pakistan celebrates Eid-ul-Fitr with religious zeal
LAHORE – As the holy month of Ramadan winds down, Muslims in Pakistan are celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, one of the most auspicious occasions in Islam.

The three-day-long celebrations mark the end of a month of fasting and are usually preceded by days of preparation that include shopping and making traditional sweet dishes at home.

Congregations were held at mosques and Eidgahs in all major cities and towns.

In their sermons, religious leaders and scholars highlighted the significance and philosophy of Eid-ul-Fitr.

Special prayers were offered for the progress and prosperity of the country and welfare of the Muslim Ummah.

Like the previous years, the 29th of Shawwal was proclaimed Chaand Raat after Pakistan’s official moon-sighting body – the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee – made an announcement as they received sufficient reports from witnesses and confirmation from the Pakistan Meteorological Department.

The Science and Information Technology Ministry had already announced that Eid-ul-Fitr would be celebrated on June 5th.
