Muslims to mark Eid Ul Fitr tomorrow
Chief Kadhi Ahmed Muhdhar has announced that Eid Ul Fitr celebrations will be marked on Saturday and not today, Friday, as expected by Muslims in the country.
Addressing a press conference on Thursday evening, the Chief Kadhi said this was due to failure to sight the moon in Kenya and other neighboring countries including Tanzania and Zanzibar.
He further urged Muslims to maintain unity and celebrate together on Saturday, adding that those who will go against his instructions will have gone against the Islamic teachings.
Muslims across the country started the Islamic Holy month Of Ramadhan last month.
Muslims observe the Ramadhan immediately after the sighting of the new moon following the culmination of the month of Shaban in the lunar-based Hijrah calendar.
During the Ramadhan, Muslims focus on reparation for wrongdoings and good deeds.
It is also the most ideal time for them to rebuild community, organizational and family ties severed by misunderstandings.
