Governor Okowa, in his Eid-el-Fitri message, through his Chief Press Secretary, Charles Aniagwu, enjoined all Muslim faithful in Delta State and Nigerians in general to extend the spiritual benefits of Ramadan, which are love, peace and justice to their daily living and through this contribute to the development of the nation.

Eid-al-Fitr is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to mark the end of Ramadan- the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm).

Eid ul Fitr is being celebrated in different parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as the rest of the country observes Jumatul-Wida, the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramazan.

Muslims around the world now come together to celebrate and break the fast.

King Salman also received phone calls from a number of leaders including President Mahmoud Abbas of Palestine, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, Kuwait Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jabir Al-Sabah, King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa of Bahrain and Kuwait Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jabir Al-Sabah, in which they exchanged greetings on the occasion of the Eid.

Ramadan is sacred to Muslims because it is during that month that tradition says the Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed.

Dr. Hasan said the two communities celebrate together in spirit.

As Muslims in Ghana and across the globe climax the end of Ramadan with the celebration of Eid-Ul-Fitr today, the NPP congratulates them on this milestone occasion and wishes them a successful Eid (Eid Mubarak). If the Hilal crescent is spotted, Eid will be celebrated tomorrow in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Chad, Djibouti and other nations in North Africa.

In such a situation, Eid is an occasion for social milieu yet schools want to spoil it for children, he added.

Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre in Birmingham confirmed: "Green Lane Masjid can confirm the moon of Shawwal has been sighted, therefor Eid ul-Fitr will be on Friday 15th June 2018". "It was a bloody run up to Eid and sadly a day of prayer and celebration has been marked by more bloodshed, pain and suffering", Mr Abdullah tweeted.
