Dar al-Fatwa declares Monday as first day of Fitr feast

Grand Mufti of the Republic, Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian, has announced in a statement that “Sunday, May 1, is the day that completes the thirty-day period of the blessed month of Ramadan,” and therefore, “Monday, May 2, 2022 AD, is the first day of Eid Al-Fitr.”

“As we congratulate Muslims on this blessed occasion, we ask God Almighty to accept their fasting, prayers, good deeds and supplications, and to bless all the Lebanese with goodness, security and tranquility,” the Mufti said.

Derian will perform the Eid Al-Fitr prayer and sermon at 6:35 on the morning of Eid at the “Mohammad Al-Amine Mosque” in downtown Beirut, while apologizing for not receiving well-wishers on the occasion.
