Eid-ul-Fitr or Eid-al-Fitr marks the first day of Shawwal month.

LAHORE (Dunya News) – Muslims in Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates (UAE) are celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr with religious fervor today (Thursday) amid third wave of coronavirus pandemic.

Eid-ul-Fitr or Eid-al-Fitr marks the first day of Shawwal month.

Every year, Eid-ul-Fitr occurs approximately 10-11 days earlier depending on the occurrence of the crescent moon because lunar months are shorter than the solar months, hence it varies from country to country by about a day.
