Eid al-Fitr will take place on Monday 2 May 2022, a date confirmed this Saturday by the Grand Mosque of Paris. The religious commission, composed of imams and representatives of various Muslim federations, was thus assembled on the occasion of the Night of Doubt, qonion intervenes 29 days after the start of the fast, and during which time the entry into the new lunar cycle should be noted. But “After consulting scientific calculations and astronomical data, the committee found: the impossibility of observing the new moon on the evening of this 29th day of Ramadan month 2022† explains the Grand Mosque of Paris in a press release published on April 30. As a result, “the date of Eid al-Fitr 2022 is therefore fixed on Monday, May 2. adds the Institute.

Why could the new moon not be observed?
†This year, the calculation shows that the birth of the new moon will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2022 at 10:28 PM Paris time (8:28 PM universal time). Because of this, it will not be visible anywhere in the world. Indeed, the world record for the visibility of the new moon is about 15 hours after its birth.the French Council of Muslim Worship explains in a statement dated April 30. However, the Malian Ministry of Religious Affairs, Religious Affairs and Customs, managed to see the crescent moon this Saturday, in Yorosso and Macina. It has also been seen in Niger. That is why Eid al-Fitr took place there this Sunday May 1, 2022.

Eid al-Fitr marks the breaking of the fast of the month of Ramadan. This festival takes place on the first day of the 10th lunar month (Chawal), and unlike the previous thirty days of hardship, the faithful are invited to eat on this day. Eid al-Fitr, also known as “little feast”, is a day of joy and joy which believers usually spend with family and friends. Between traditions and religious obligations, this day is experienced as a time conducive to sharing and community.
Eid day starts with a prayer specific and collective. Men and women gather at the mosque in the morning to pray and then listen to the imam’s sermon. Since this is the end of a month-long fast, practitioners immediately gather around a celebratory meal, hearty, gourmet and traditionally sweet.

The end of Ramadan is also an opportunity to fulfill the obligation of Zakat, that is, alms to the poorest. In a statement dated April 20, the Grand Mosque of Paris set the amount of Zakat at 7 euros. “The amount of Zakat el-Fitr is set at 7 euros for this year 2022-1443/H (and the fidiyah at 5 euros per day of compensation).” In theory† Zakat should be four times the contents of two hands put together and filled with food.
