Eid al-Fitr is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. This religious Eid is the first and only day in the month of Shawwal during which Muslims are not permitted to fast. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. The day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month of Shawwal. The date for the start of any lunar Hijri month varies based on when the new moon is sighted by local religious authorities, so the exact day of celebration varies by locality.

The beginning of the month in the astronomical choreography and the monthly calendar of the Islamic calendar is different. In the astronomical moon, the moon begins when the moon is in conjunction. The moon is only 15 to 18 hours after conjugation. Moreover, if the western sky is clouded or clouded in the sky, the moon cannot be seen. Even if the astronomical month is due to the importance of seeing the moon, such occasions will only be considered for a period of 30 days in the current month.

 One or more loyal individuals will acknowledge the moon as witness to the committee of Islamic leadership that the moon has been observed.

This importance in the Islamic calendar to see the Moon led to the conversion of many Muslim scientists into astronomy and the advent of the Islamic world in the early years of astronomy.
