When is Eid al-Fitr 2021 in Nigeria?

Eid al-Fitr is only a few days away as Muslims from different countries in the world celebrate the end of Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar.

After a month of fasting, Muslims will celebrate Eid upon the successful completion of Ramadan and sighting of the crescent moon.

The exact date of celebration of Eid al-Fitr varies from country to country due to geography and moon behaviour.

Just like how Muslims observed the beginning of Ramadan with the sighting of the new moon, Eid al-Fitr will also be confirmed by the sighting of the crescent moon.

Eid al-Fitr is celebrated in any country only after the sighting of the crescent, which marks the beginning of the new Islamic month of Shawwal.

The date for Eid al-Fitr 2021 in Nigeria

Eid al-Fitr 2021 in Nigeria will begin in the evening of Wednesday, May 12, and ends in the evening of Thursday, May 13.

Note that these dates may vary slightly depending on when the moon is sighted.
