EID 2020: Eid ul-Fitr 2020 Date and time of moon sighting in India - All you need to know about EID 2020 Moon Sighting

Vikram Sharma

The crescent moon spotting signals the end of the Ramzan month and the Eid festival's arrival. Eid-ul-Fitra is observed in the Ramzan month when people in the Muslim community practice Roza (Islamic fasts). The rite is carried out with the observation of a sehri and iftar. Sehri marks the start of a Roza while iftar marks the end of a Roza. This practice is performed for a duration of approximately 30 days. The exact Eid-ul-Fitra timing and date will only be confirmed after the crescent moon sighting. The Eid-ul-Fitr 's precise date and time are different in both nations, as it all relies on where the moon is visible.

What is Eid-al-Fitr 2020?

Eid-al-Fitr (Eid al-Fitr, Eid ul-Fitr, Id-Ul-Fitr, Eid) is the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal. It marks the end of Ramadan, which is a month of fasting and prayer. Many Muslims attend communal prayers, listen to a khutba (sermon) and give zakat al-fitr (charity in the form of food) during Eid al-Fitr.

What is the history behind Eid Al Fitr?

Ramadan's month is one through which the Quran was revealed; a guide to humanity, and simple proofs of direction, and criteria (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you may be present, let him fast the month, and whoever of you may be sick or on a trip, several more days. Allah desires for you ease; He desires not hardship for you; and that you should complete the period, and that you should magnify Allah for having guided you, and that perhaps you may be thankful.

Muslims believe that during Ramadan all scripture was unveiled, the scrolls of Abraham, Torah, Psalms, Bible, and Quran were handed down on the fifth, sixth, twelfth, thirteenth (in some accounts, eighteenth) and twenty-fourth Ramadans, respectively. Muhammad is said to have received his first Quranic revelation on Laylat al-Qadr, one of the five odd-numbered nights that have fallen over Ramadan's last ten days.

What about Eid Al Fitr 2020 significance?

Eid Al Fitr 2020 significance is In the holiest time of Ramadan or Ramzan, while the Islamic community observes Roza (fasting in Islam), Eid ul-Fitr is observed as the culmination of a month-long fast. The practice is performed by performing a veryi or suhoor before sunrise, and iftar after post-sunset Maghrib. This practice is observed for a duration of up to 30 days as Eid relies on the appearance of the moon that may take place on Ramzan's 29th of 30th day.

After the observation of the crescent moon the precise date and period of Eid ul-Fitr will be confirmed. Timings and dates differ in all countries, with the celebrations beginning in Saudi Arabia. Moon cycles determine the Hijri or Islamic calendar, which lasts either 29 or 30 days. A new moon or the crescent moon signifies the beginning of a new month.

What are Ramadan date and moon sighting time in India?

Astronomers at the observatory of Majmaah University near Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, confirmed on Thursday that Shawwal's crescent moon is unlikely to be sighted on Friday, Ramadan 29 (May 22, 2020). Sources at the observatory said, "According to the scientific calculations published on the astronomical observatory site, the sun is set at 6.39 p.m. at 293 degrees, and the moon is set at 6.26 p.m. Friday, Ramadan 29, which means that the moon is set 13 minutes before sunset. On Saturday, Ramadan 30, corresponding to May 23, the sun will set at 6.40 pm at 239 degrees, and the crescent moon will set at 7.23 pm at 293 degrees, which means that the crescent will stay on at 8.84 altitude and 10.60 degrees for 43 minutes after sunset."
