Eid-ul-Fitr 2023 will likely be on Saturday 22nd April in Pakistan. Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated after the month of Ramadan on 1st Shawaal. We are to enter in the first Ashra of Ramadan 1444 Hijri and everyone is wondering to know when will be the Eid-ul-Fitr 2023 in Pakistan.
Eid is a word of Arabic origin that refers to a religious festival in Islam. There are two major Eids in Islam: Eid-ul-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting, and Eid al-Adha, which commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah.
Muslims all around the world celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on the first day of Shawwal, the month that follows Ramadan. Eid is an occasion for Muslims to gather with family and friends, attend special prayers, give charity, share food, gifts, and happiness, and enjoy festive meals and activities.
The exact date of Eid-ul-Fitr in Pakistan depends on the sighting of the new moon, and it is celebrated on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal. As per the prediction, the Eid-ul-Fitr 2023 in Pakistan will be on Saturday 22nd April, because there are chances of the Shawwal moon being sighted on Friday 21st April in the country.
The Central Ruet e Hilal Committee will be held a meeting on 20th April 2022 in Islamabad and Karachi to see the Shawwal moon in Pakistan.
The Ruet-i-Hilal Research Council (RHRC) council’s Secretary-General, Khalid Ijaz Mufti, has declared that the committee’s meeting is scheduled to sight the Shawwal moon on Thursday, 20 April. However, the chances of being able to see the Shawwal moon that evening are few.
The weather would expect to be fair or partly cloudy in most parts of the country but the Shawwal moon won’t be visible on that evening so there are clear chances that the Eid-ul-Fitr 2023 in Pakistan will be on Saturday, April 22 and Ramadan will complete 30 days on Friday. The Shawwal moon will be born on Thursday, 20 April, at 9:13 a.m. Pakistan time.
The Holy month of Ramadan began on Wednesday, March 22 in Pakistan, and it will last for 30 days, marking Eid-ul-Fitr on Saturday, April 22, as per the Eid prediction 2023 in Pakistan.
In case, the estimation is accurate, then Eid-ul-Fitr 2023 in Pakistan might be celebrated on Saturday, April 22. The Federal government will officially declare the Eid-ul-Fitr 2023 holidays in Pakistan and this year it is only four holidays on the occasion of Eid.
On Eid day, Muslims attend special prayers in the morning, known as Salat-ul-Eid, and then spend the rest of the day visiting family and friends. Charity is also a significant part of Eid-ul-Fitr, and Muslims are encouraged to give to the poor and needy.
A large number of people also pay the Zakat al-Fitr, a special charity that is due before the Eid prayer, which is used to give to the poor and needy so that they can also participate in the festivities of Eid.
