"We join our Muslim brothers and sisters in celebrating Eid'l Fitr, the most important festival in the Islamic calendar, which marks the end of Ramadan or the month-long journey of reflection, prayer and fasting", Gordon said.
Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, which is a lunar calendar based on the cycles of the moon.
This means Eid-ul-Fitr would be celebrated on Friday.
ADJD's own moon sighting committee will continue to collect evidence of sighting the new moon of the Hijri month of Shawwal and is to report findings to the Ministry's committee.
After a month of fasting from sunrise to sunset, Muslims celebrate Eid with massive family feasts and prayers. According to the Gazi Council, 5-10 manats should be given by each person.

Celebrations will start with Eid prayers in the very early morning, when Muslims around the world head to the mosques to perform the morning prayers. In Kerala, however, it would be observed on June 15, Friday. Hence, Muslims in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, Morocco, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Palestine, Yemen, Sudan, Tunisia, Oman and other GCC nations will also sight the Eid 2018 moon today i.e. Thursday June 14, 2018. The Muslim community gathers at masjids to pray.
"If the crescent is sighted by Muslims of impeccable character on the said evening, His Eminence would declare Friday, 15th June, 2018 as the first day of Shawwal and the day of 'idul fitr". After the common prayer, the community interchanges the festival greetings and gifts.
The party further implored the youth to celebrate in moderation "so that at the end of the day, no injury is recorded nor life, lost". It is traditional to wear new clothes on Eid and many bake sweet treats ahead of the celebrations. The three-day celebration is commonly known as "Eid".
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has also confirmed parking timings during the Eid holiday.
