Significance of Eid ul Fitr

Eid ul Fitr holds immense significance in the Islamic lunar calendar as it marks the culmination of the holy month of Ramadan, a period of fasting, introspection, and spiritual growth. The exact date of Eid is contingent upon the sighting of the new moon, which traditionally determines the beginning and end of Islamic months. This year, the anticipated date for Eid ul Fitr falls either on April 10 or April 11, subject to the confirmation of the new moon sighting.
