Muslim faithfuls in Nigeria, Africa and around the world are beginning their prayers and celebrations for Eid ul Fitr 2022. Also written as Eid al-Fitr, it means ‘festival of breaking the fast’ and takes place when Ramadan ends, signalling that the daily fasting is over and the next month (Shawwal) begins.
Earlier Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar announced that EID prayer will be held across Nigeria on Monday, May 2.
Similarly Saudi Arabia announced that Eid ul Fitr festivities will start on Monday, along with a number of other countries. For others, though, Eid already started on Sunday, May 1, or won’t be until Tuesday, May 3. The festivities normally last for three days.
Dates of Eid and other Islamic months and events can vary by a day or so depending on moon-sighting announcements from different locations. Some communities follow the Saudi news, others look for confirmation in Morocco, the UK, or other countries. So how do you wish your neighbours or friends, colleague at work, a Happy Eid and what can be said as a reply?
How to wish Muslims Happy Sallah/EID Day:
