It's official - Qatar will be celebrating Eid Al Fitr from Wednesday (July 6). The Crescent Sighting Committee at Qatar's Ministry of Endowments (Awqaf) and Islamic Affairs announced on Monday evening that Tuesday, July 5, will be the 30th day of Ramadan and Wednesday will be the first day of Eid Al Fitr, QNA reported.

The High Judiciary Council in Saudi Arabia also announced that no new moon could be seen on Monday night, Tuesday would be the last day of Ramadan. The first day of Shawwal, the Islamic month after Ramadan, is the day that Eid is celebrated after 29/30 days of fasting from dawn to sunset.

On Eid, the prayer that is performed in a congregation has two units (known as rakats) with six additional Takbirs (Allahu Akbar). After you offer the prayers, it’s all about spending quality time with friends and family. The Eid prayers will be held at nearly 300 mosques around Qatar at 5:03am on Wednesday.

We hope you have new clothes ready for the special occasion. Yes, Eid is about that and so much more! Let’s celebrate another successful Ramadan that we have all had together and thank God for the way he has blessed us to do so. Even though we might not write about the seven weekly good deeds anymore, we still plan to continue most of them. So, what are you guys planning to do this Eid?

Eid Mubarak from team ILQ!
