In all parts of the Islamic world, family and friends get together to celebrate the holiday of Eid al-Fitr. The celebration of Eid al-Fitr, which lasts for two to three days and comes immediately after the completion of the fasting month of Ramadan, is considered by many Muslims to be the most important and pleasant aspect of their religion.
In essence, Eid al-Fitr provides the faithful with the chance to thank God for having been allowed the fortitude and conviction to finish the mandatory fast and keep His commands throughout the holy month of Ramadan. This is the primary purpose of the holiday.
Muslims delight at having attained a level of fitra (innocence or purity) as a result of having done so since it means they have been forgiven for all of their sins and may thus begin a fresh chapter in their lives.
As we get ready to welcome the holiest of months, we would like to share with you the dates, public holidays, and observances that will take place in Pakistan in 2023 in preparation for and in celebration of Eid al-Fitr.
When compared to the Gregorian calendar, which is a solar calendar, the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar and is based on the sighting of the moon. Depending on when the first sighting of the crescent moon occurs, the date of the Eid al-Fitr holiday will be set (a day after the new moon). As a consequence of this, the procedure for establishing the date of the Eid al-Fitr holiday may only be carried out under the cover of darkness. In the event that the crescent moon is not seen, the holy month of Ramadan is prolonged by one day.
The celebration of Eid ul Fitr 2023 in Pakistan is anticipated to take place on Friday, April 21 of the next year.
Despite the fact that Eid ul Fitr is a national holiday in Pakistan and that its celebrations normally last all of three days, no official proclamation has been issued as of yet. This year’s four-day public holiday began on the second of May and will continue until the fifth of that month, as stated in the notification that was made by the federal government. During the national holiday in Pakistan, most places of commerce, including schools and banks, would be shut down.
On the morning of Eid, people of all socioeconomic backgrounds get up early, wash their bodies, put on fresh outfits, and begin the day with a breakfast of vermicelli, which are thin wheat noodles that have been cooked in milk and are generally known as vermicelli.
Sheer Korma is a particular dessert that is served during this occasion in Pakistan. It is made of pasta that has been boiled in milk and sugar, and then it is topped with chopped pistachios, almonds, and dates. This meal is offered as breakfast on the morning of Eid, immediately following the Eid prayer, and at other times during the day to any visitors who may be in attendance.

Children, in particular, are quite enthusiastic about Eid al-Fitr because they have grown to link it with receiving a lot of presents and feasting for a long time. It is customary for parents to show their appreciation for children by presenting them with candies, presents, and even little quantities of money to convey their happiness during the festival.
