In the federal capital, the main congregation will be held at Faisal Mosque where top government officials and envoys of Muslim countries will offer Eid prayers.

On Sunday, the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee declared that the festival would be celebrated today (Tuesday) as the Shawwal moon was not sighted anywhere in the country. However, Eid was celebrated in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Monday following the announcement by an unofficial moon-sighting committee.

Meanwhile, Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and Yemen as well as Muslims in Europe, America and East Asia celebrated Eidul Fitr on Monday. In his message, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Secretary-General Hissein Brahim Taha felicitated the entire Muslim world on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.

“Although Eid is an occasion that carries lofty meanings and feelings, the existence of numerous crises in the Muslim world as we celebrate Eid remains a source of distress,” the secretary-general asserted. He reaffirmed OIC’s support for the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque in the face of the Israeli onslaught. The secretary-general also expressed solidarity with Rohingya refugees and Muslims in other parts of the world, particularly Jammu and Kashmir.
