"We have ordained phases for the moon, which daily wanes and end the end appears like a bent old twig -Holy Koran 36:39

Eid-al-Fitr is the celebration marking the end of the Holy month of Ramadan, when fasting gives way to feasting and the inner prayers of the faithful are made manifest in fellowship and forgiveness of grudges. The official passing of Ramadan relies on a sighting of the crescent moon, which can vary depending on your location (as well as weather conditions). This year, you can expect to break your fast on December 6. MoonCalc 5.2 is the program you will need in order to determine in advance when exactly Eid-al-Fitr should be celebrated in your locality. Be prepared.
