The Muslim community of Udaipur would be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr tomorrow.  The Crescent Moon, though, kept the Muslim’s of Udaipur waiting and didn’t show up, but Islamic Scholars declared the celebration of Eid, by confirming to Udaipur’s peer areas.

Areas including Fatehnagar, Dungarpur, Chittorgarh and Kherwada reported the sighting of moon, yet Udaipur was waiting for the moon to show up.  People were expecting the moon to show up after offering Namaz (Maghrib) this evening, but cloudy weather kept this joy at bay for a while.

Then, the officials from Anjuman Talimul Islamic Committee, Anjuman went to Fatehnagar to confirm and witness (known as Shahaadat) the sighting of the moon in the area.  After the Namaz-e-Isha’a in the evening, the declaration of Eid being tomorrow was made at the Dholi Bawadi Masjid.

Tomorrow, Eid-Ul-Fitr and Eid Khutbah will be offered at 8.30AM in the masjids that are in colonies; 9AM at Paltan Masjid, Chetak and 9.15AM at Jama Masjid, Chamanpura.

The obvious joy and cheerfulness was observed among the members of the community as Eid was declared and everyone was seen and heard wishing Eid Mubarak to each other.
