South Africans celebrate Eid ul-Fitr

Johannesburg - Eid ul-Fitr celebrations could begin as early as tomorrow, if the new moon is spotted in the sky, here in South Africa. 

Yesterday, cloudy conditions hampered the sighting of the Shawal moon in Johannesburg, but in other cities around the world, the moon was visible. 

In Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and even as far as Australia the start of the Eid ul-Fitr holidays begins today.

The celebration marks the end of the holy month of Ramadaan, during which Muslims abstain from food and drinks from dawn to dusk.

According to The Week, in several countries, Eid al-Fitr celebrations last for three days. This year, Pakistan announced a five day holiday this year.
