Muslims pray on the occasion of Eid-al-Fitr at Kasimiri mosque in Kathmandu, Nepal on Wednesday, June 05, 2019.This is the tentative date as the actual date is contingent on the sighting of the moon of Shawwal, the 10th month in the Islamic calender.

The month of Ramadan is full of celebration, joy and festivity as the Muslims immerse themselves in reading the Quran and Duas and spending maximum time doing Dhikr. The Muslims fast the whole month as it teaches them the true meaning of perseverance and tolerance while being empathetic towards the poor and needy.

At the end of the month, the Muslims are rewarded with the festival of Eid al Fitr. It is important to note that it is highly forbidden to fast on the day of Eid.
