President Trump Breaks with Tradition, Skips Annual Ramadan Dinner

Posted June 26, 2017

The main Eid-ul-Fitr congregation will be held at the Jatiya Eidgah in the capital at 8:30am.

In 2016 the moon sighting took place in Pakistan without any opposition, Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman announced that the Eid will be celebrated on the same day all around the country.

The religious affairs ministry has requested media persons to avoid airing any news regarding moon sighting prior to the official announcement. Bangladesh will take a call first followed by India and Pakistan based on Sun set timing in the respective regions. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam.

Ramadan is the month on the Islamic lunar calendar when Muslims abstain from food, drink and other "sensual pleasures" from dawn to sunset, according to CAIR.

As per this tradition, a new month is sighted on 29th of the prevailing month. Eid al-Fitr is the "break" to that fast.

"The moon was sighted in different parts of the country therefore the Chief Kadhi can not run that office as if it his own office", said Garissa Township MP Aden Duale.

"Taiwan is a hospitable country", the president said in the video. Hence today is 30th Ramadan in Oman and Eid celebration will begin from Monday.

"Muslims in the United States joined those around the world during the holy month of Ramadan to focus on acts of faith and charity", the statement read as quoted by the report.

In some parts of the world, Eid will be celebrated on June 26.

Thus in Chicago, with such communal exuberance marking the celebrations, Eid finds its true meaning - to bring people together and celebrate the joys!

Hyderabad: The Moon of "Shawwal" has been sighted in Hyderabad.
