Tehran, May 13, IRNA - Secretary General of World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought Hojjatoleslam Hamid Shahriari in a message on Thursday congratulated world Muslims on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr on May 13.

Eid al-Fitr is the first day of the tenth month of Islamic calendar when Muslims celebrate the arrival of Shawwal after one month of fasting in Ramadan.

He also wished for defeat of enemies of Islam, Zionist regime of Israel in particular.

The advent of Ramadan may vary from country to country depending on the situation of the moon. Since the new moon is not in the same state at the same time globally, the beginning and ending dates of Ramadan depend on what lunar sightings receive in each location.

As a result, Ramadan dates vary in different countries, but usually only by a day.
