Muslims will celebrate the joyous occasion of Eid al-Fitr on Wednesday, April 10th, 2024, after the crescent moon signifying the end of Ramadan was not sighted on Monday evening.

The announcement came from the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) following the moon sighting committee reporting negative results.

Dr. Sheikh Ziyad Swaleh Lubanga, Director of Sharia at UMSC, addressed the nation, stating, "After careful assessments and consultations with moon sighting committees throughout Uganda, it has been confirmed that the crescent moon has not been sighted this evening. Therefore, Eid al-Fitr will be celebrated on Wednesday, April 10th."

The Muslim leadership in Saudi Arabia made a similar proclamation moments ago, urging believers to spend the remaining days of the auspicious month doing good deeds.

Many Ugandans who had hoped to celebrate Eid on Tuesday as planned will probably be somewhat disappointed by this news. The additional day of contemplation and prayer to conclude the holy month of Ramadan is made possible by the postponement, however.

Eid al-Fitr, also known as the "Festival of Breaking the Fast," is celebrated on the final day of Ramadan, the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. Ramadan is a time for fasting, prayer, and introspection.

On Wednesday morning, worshippers are anticipated to gather at mosques around the nation for special Eid prayers.

Families will prepare customary meals, exchange blessings, and spend time together. 

This joyous occasion, marked by feasting, family reunions, and gift-giving, is eagerly awaited by Muslims in Uganda.
