Holy Ramadan is auspicious for Muslims all over the world and in Pakistan as well. People do intense worship during this month and ask for forgiveness whilst fasting from dawn till sunset during this month.
Eid-ul Fitr is a festival of Fast Breaking because people celebrate it after fasting for 29 or 30 days. The date of Eid-ul- Fitr depends on the sighting of the moon. The sighting of a new crescent moon decides the date of the Eid and marks the end of a holy month, which is Ramadan.
In 2022, nothing could be said for sure whether the Eid is on 2nd or 3rd May 2022; but the government has announced the official holidays of Eid in all sectors from 2nd May 2022, Monday till 5th May 2022, which is Thursday. The notification has circulated after the approval of Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif.
Astronomers have predicted that the new crescent is most likely to be seen on the evening of 2nd May 2022 and will be visible for 40 to 89 minutes in different parts of the country if the weather remains clear. According to the astronomer’s report, the moon will be born between April 30th and May 1st at 1:28 PST on the cross conjunction point.
Most people in Pakistan celebrate EID by meeting their immediate family members. People go to their relative’s house or invite people to their house and have meals together, share their lives, gossip about everything, and laugh whole-heartedly.
Eid-ul-Fitr also helps to rebuild and regain relations with the relatives or siblings that have lost because of misunderstandings. By meeting each other after the holy month of Ramadan, people try to forgive and forget their previous mistakes of each other and hug their loved ones whole-heartedly after Eid prayer. Muslims enjoy Sheer- korma and other sweet dishes after Eid prayer at almost every home. It is one of the crucial delicacies of Eid.
