When Eid in 2024?

 In 2024, the holy month Ramadan may start on March 12th, Tuesday. If the sighting of the crescent moon of Shawwal is on the 29th, then Eid ul Fitr can be celebrated on April 10th. But there is a high possibility that the sighting of the crescent moon of Shawwal is on the 30th, so according to this, Eid will be on Thursday, April 11th.

What is Eid ul-Fitr?

Eid al-Fitr is a combination of two words: Eid and Fitr. Eid is an Arabic word that means the one who returns again and again, the day of happiness that comes again and again, and Fitr is also an Arabic word that means to leave and give ransom.

What kind of festival is Eid ul-Fitr?

Eid ul-Fitr is the most important and religious festival of all Muslims living in the world, which Muslims celebrate on the first date of the month of Shawwal after fasting for 29 or 30 days of holy Ramadan. The month of Shawwal is the tenth month of the Islamic calendar. Before this, Muslims fasted during the entire month of holy Ramadan; they did not eat or drink anything during the day, and this ban ended on the day of Eid, so they got double happiness. Since Islamic dates are based on the Hijri calendar, Since Islamic history is based on the moon, and the moon rises one day after or before in different parts of the world, Eid is celebrated one day before or after in different countries of the world.

Sadaqah al-Fitr

Sadaqah al-Fitr means fasting charity; this charity is necessary for every person on whom Zakat is obligatory. This order was given by the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) before the obligation of Zakat in the year in which the fasting of holy Ramadan became obligatory. If a Muslim is wealthy and on whom Zakat is obligatory, it is necessary to give Sadaqah al-Fitr; this sadaqah is obligatory on the wealthy person on behalf of himself and his minor children; this sadaqah is given to the poor and needy so that they can also share in the joys of Eid. This charity is also called Fitrana. Its amount, or one person’s Sadaqa al-Fitr, is (1.636 KG) one kilogram, six hundred and thirty-six grams of wheat, or (3.272 KG) three kilograms, two hundred seventy-two grams of barley, raisins, or dates, or its value.

Eid prayer

On the day of Eid, one and a half hours after sunrise, two rakat prayers are offered. It is also called “Do gana” in India.  It is necessary in the thought of the school of hanafi, while it is the Sunnah in the Shafi’i and Maliki.

Eid prayer method

The way to perform it in the thought of the school of Hanafi is that when his congregation starts to stand up for prayer, he intends to recite the two rakat Eid prayers with six takbir.
After saying Takbeer, “الله أكبر Allahu akbar,” tie your hands below the navel and recite Sana.
After that, say three more takbeer with the imam. In two takbirs, raise your hands up to your ears and leave them, and on the third takbir, raise your hands and tie them below the navel.
After that, the Imam should recite and do Qirat in a loud voice.
After completing the recitation, perform ruku and sajdah, etc., in the same way as they do in other prayers.
Then, at the beginning of the second rakat, the imam should recite in a loud voice.
After that, say three more takbir, raising your hands to your ears in all three takbir and leaving them.
Then, without raising your hands, go into Ruku after saying the fourth Takbeer, and then, do Ruku and sajda like the other prayers; after two Sajdahs, recite Al-Tahiyat, Durood Sharif, and Duay e Mathura, and then recite Salam and complete the Eid prayer.
Then, after completing the prayer, the Imam gives two sermons and sits for a while between the two sermons.
Like prayer, these sermons are also necessary, and it is also necessary to listen to them.

Eid ul-Fitr Message

Of course, the day of Eid is a day of joy and happiness for Muslims; every house is settled, everyone looks happy, people are wearing new and bright clothes, there is variety in eating and drinking, people wish Eid Mubarak to their neighbors, relatives, and friends, alright, and it should happen, but at the same time, on this occasion of happiness, we should also think about the poor and destitute Muslims, the helpless and forced widows, and the unfortunate, destitute orphans who are sobbing with hunger. There is no one to turn the hand of compassion on their heads, whose hearts are broken seeing our happiness. Eid knocks in their houses, but there is neither a grain of food in their houses nor any clothes to wear. and other accessories are beyond their imagination, but it is a pity that we forget them on the occasion of such happiness. It is the moral and religious duty of all wealthy Muslims to pay attention to these helpless and forced people on such a happy occasion and fulfill their needs.
