Eid al-Fitr

The month of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and prayer, comes to and end this week. Muslims will celebrate Eid al-Fitr, literally the “holiday of the breaking of the fast.”

As is the case with many religious and cultural holidays that are based on lunar calendars, the date of Eid varies from year to year, as the Islamic calendar is not in sync with the Gregorian calendar. Also, according to Islam the new month doesn’t officially begin until religious authorities confirm the sighting of the moon. As such, we can only predict the start of Eid. In 2023 it is predicted that Eid al-Fitr will begin on April 21.

We wish “Eid Mubarak” to the more than one million Muslims in Canada, and to the almost two billion Muslims around the world.
