Eid al-Fitr celebrates the end of the daily fast through the holy month of Ramadan.
The world’s 1.8 billion Muslims are waiting for an announcement that Ramadan is over and the next month, Shawwal, has begun.
Shawwal begins with Eid’s festivities and lasts up to three days.
Announcements are traditionally based on a verified observation of the first crescent of the new moon.
Some worshipers in Birmingham and elsewhere in the UK follow news of lunar sightings from Saudi Arabia, others base their calendar on sightings in other parts of the world, including the UK itself, as well as Pakistan and Morocco.
