Government Declares Four-Day Holiday for Eid-ul-Fitr.

Government Declares Four-Day Holiday for Eid-ul-Fitr.

As Eid ul Fitr approaches, Pakistan's federal government has officially declared a four-day holiday period between April 10-13 to enable citizens to celebrate this joyous event with family and loved ones. Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif approved this holiday period.

As people await the sighting of the Shawwal moon to signal the end of Ramazan, Eidul Fitr will be observed on either April 10 or 11, as reported by Express News. If sighted on April 9 it will be celebrated on that date otherwise it will occur on April 11.

Early forecasts by the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) indicate that the Shawwal moon should appear across Pakistan on Tuesday, April 9 at 11:21 pm local time. Its birth is anticipated for April 8 at 11.21 pm.

On April 9, the moon will have been visible for 19 to 20 hours and is predicted to remain visible after sunset for over 50 minutes on the horizon. Most southern regions, including Karachi, should experience clear skies during their lunar observation, while northern areas could experience cloudier conditions that obscure views during viewings of its surface.

Should the moon be visible on April 9, Eidul Fitr celebrations will kick off on Wednesday, April 10. This joyful occasion symbolizes unity, compassion, and gratitude; thus making Eidul Fitr an extremely auspicious time in Islamic tradition.

Eid ul Fitr is traditionally celebrated with special prayers, feasting, and the exchange of gifts between family and friends to foster an atmosphere of joyous community spirit.

Eid holidays typically occur well in advance to give people time for preparations and fully enjoy the festivities. This extended holiday period provides individuals with ample time to cherish moments of togetherness and reflection while celebrating Eidul Fitr with reverence and joy.
