Eid Mubarak from Nelson Town Council
Because Muslims follow the Lunar Calendar, this year Eid-Ul-Fitr will be celebrated on either Tuesday 4th, Wednesday 5th June 2019 or Thursday 6th June. Eid-Ul-Fitr marks the end of the month of Ramadhan in which Muslims fast from the morning twilight to the evening twilight.
Councillor Zafar Ali, Chairman Nelson Town Council, said: “The month of Ramadhan has been a blessing for Muslims around the world. We’ve seen once again the real message of Ramadhan on display at community Iftars and charity events in Pendle. Its magnificent to see integration and diversity at the heart of Ramadhan in Pendle. After a month of fasting it is now the time where everyone will be rejoicing the words- Eid Mubarak!"
Cllr. Nazeem Hayat, Vice-Chairman, Nelson Town Council said: "Eid Mubarak from me and my colleagues at Nelson Town Council. I was fortunate to join in with some community Iftars and I’m proud to be a part of such a diverse community here in Nelson, Pendle."
On behalf of Nelson Town Council, we wish everyone in Nelson, Lancashire and throughout the UK- Eid Mubarak. #Nelson #Pendle #Eidmubarak
