The date of Eid ul Fitr in India in 2024

When the crescent moon appears one day after the new moon, it is possible to determine the date of Eid ul Fitr. Consequently, the procedure for ascertaining the date of Eid ul Fitr is confined to nocturnal operations. In the absence of a visible crescent moon, the holy month of Ramadan gains an additional day.

The zodiac sign indicates whether Eid al-Fitr will occur on Monday, April 8th, or Tuesday, April 9th, 2024. In observance of the Islamic calendar, Eid al-Fitr occurs on the first and second days of Shawwal. It should be noted that dates are subject to variation and change during the lunar cycle.

Observance of Eid ul Fitr in India

While the Eid ul Fitr festivities in India differ slightly from those observed in other countries, they exhibit certain commonalities. Although the religious observances persist, the cuisine and sweets are distinctively Indian. Observances of Eid ul Fitr by Indian Muslims generally unfold as follows:

The nocturnal period preceding Eid ul Fitr is referred to as the Night of the Moon or Chaand Raat, by Muslims. By tradition, Muslim families visit bazaars, markets, and shopping centers that cater to their every need during the holy night of Eid ul Fitr. During the evening, individuals purchase clothing, traditional refreshments, and other items associated with the holiday season.

The Zakat al Fitr (devotional contribution), which is a religious obligation, must be fulfilled before the commencement of the morning Eid prayer. Those in a position to do so monetarily must make donations of rice, barley, dates, and other comparable provisions. Before the festivities, this obligatory contribution must be distributed to the less fortunate so that all spirits may experience the joys of the season.

The morning Eid prayer follows. Muslims gather in sizable mosques or any other suitable outdoor area designated for worship. The Eid prayer centers around expressing gratitude to the divine for bestowing the believers with the determination and resolve to endure the arduous fast of Ramadan.

After Eid, families distribute gifts and congratulate neighbors and friends on Ramadan’s end. Indians traditionally visit family and friend cemeteries and pray for their everlasting souls.

At tables adorned with ornaments, dozens of traditional foods and refreshments are being served. Typically, such delicacies consist of the following:

  • Sheer khurma, a decadent Eid staple, consists of vermicelli encrusted with chunky almonds, raisins, and a sweet milk pudding.
  • Biryani is a delectable rice delicacy comprised of succulent portions of the specified meat.
  • Sheermal is a chewy and sweet flatbread prepared with milk enhanced with saffron, ghee, and sugar.
