Chairman Maulana Abdul Khabeer of the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee previously stated that Eid ul Fitr 2024 is expected to occur on Wednesday, April 10 in Pakistan.

Maulana Azad suggests that scientific observations indicate a high likelihood of sighting the Shawwal crescent moon on the 29th of Ramadan this year.

Traditionally, Eid celebrations begin a day earlier than expected to provide people enough time to prepare and participate in the happy festivities.

With the government planning a four-day holiday from April 9 (Tuesday) to April 12 (Friday), combined with the regular weekend holidays on Saturday and Sunday celebrated by both government and select private offices, the overall holiday period is projected to last six days.

Eidul Fitr is a significant cultural and religious holiday for Muslims around the world, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, which is characterized by fasting, prayer, and meditation.

In Pakistan, the event is widely celebrated, with family gathering to exchange greetings, eat meals, and perform acts of charity for those in need.
