Filipino Muslims will celebrate Eid’l Fitr in 2024 on April 10.

Filipino Muslims will celebrate Eid’l Fitr — the Festival of Breaking the Fast — on Wednesday, April 10, as announced by Bangsamoro Mufti Sheikh Abdulrauf Guialani after moonsighting across designated areas in the country.

Malacañang had earlier declared Wednesday, April 10, as a holiday for the observance of Eid’l Fitr.

The sighting of the moon crescent is crucial in determining Eid’l Fitr as it marks the beginning of the new lunar month of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic lunar calendar.

Eid’l Fitr is a major Islamic festivity that signifies the end of Ramadan — a month of fasting that began on March 12 this year.

The dates of Eid’l Fitr and Ramadan may vary in different areas as countries follow independent moonsighting practices.

Eid’l Fitr, traditionally celebrated for three days, is a time of joy and celebration for Muslims worldwide.

Muslims begin the festivities with morning prayers at the mosque.

The occasion is also marked by gathering with family and friends, sharing meals, and exchanging gifts.

Other Southeast Asian countries like Indonesia and Malaysia will also celebrate Eid on Wednesday.
