Eid al-Fitr Mubarak
This is to announce that as the moon crescent has been sighted in some regions of Northern America such as in California, Friday April 21st is Eid al-Fitr in Ottawa for the ones relying on astronomical evidence or common night. Whereas, Saturday April 22nd is Eid al-Fitr for the ones relying on local sighting or common horizon. This is a personal consideration that needs to be proven to each individual based on the observations and evidence.
Imam Hossein Cultural Centre of Ottawa holds Eid al-Fitr prayers on both Friday April 21st and Saturday April 22nd at 9 AM.
Our heartiest greetings on the auspicious occasion of Eid al-Fitr. Marking the culmination of the holy month of Ramzan. Eid al-Fitr is a holy occasion to strengthen brotherhood and harmony in society. On this holy occasion, let us all take a pledge to serve humanity and improve the lives of the needy.
