Palestinian Muslims Massively Attend Eid-ul-Fitra Prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque

Saturday 18 July 2015
Palestinian Muslims Massively Attend Eid-ul-Fitra Prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque
Alwaght-Thousands of Palestinian Muslims on Friday attended Eid-ul-Fitr prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Quds amid restrictions imposed by the Israeli regime.
Sheikh Youssef Abu Sneina, delivered the Eid sermon in which he demanded the release of thousands of Palestinian political detainees languishing in the Israeli regime prisons.
Abu Sneina hailed the Palestinian people for their steadfastness despite the tough restrictions imposed by the Israeli occupation authorities.
A big banner reading “Oh our Prisoners Victory is around the corner” was hoisted by Palestinian activists at the Mosque’s walls.
The worshipers also had posters of  the spokesperson of the military wing of Hamas, al-Qassam Brigades, Abu Ubeida.
Thousands marched in the alleys of the Old City Al Quds, chanting “Allah the Greatest.”
Some young protesters were wearing T-shirts bearing the picture of Mohammed Morsi, the first democratically-elected Egyptian president.
Every year millions of Muslims converge on mosques throughout the crisis-wracked Arab world to mark the Eid al-Fitr -- the three-day festival that follows the fasting month of Ramadan.
Among the nations that celebrated the major Islamic festivity on Friday were Saudi Arabia, Syria, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Palestine, Qatar, Turkey, Afghanistan, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Bangladesh and India, however, are among those nations that have declared Saturday as Eid al-Fitr since the moon crescent which marks the beginning of the new month could not be sighted in those countries by Friday.  
Like millions of Muslims around the world, Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip celebrated Eid-al-Fitr. But they cannot afford to buy new clothes, sweets or gifts to celebrate the occasion across the impoverished coastal sliver,
The first day of the month of Shawwal on the lunar calendar is called Eid al-Fitr, which is decided when the first crescent of a new moon is sighted. During the Eid, Muslims attend communal prayers, listen to sermons and give Zakat al-Fitr or donations to the poor.
The auspicious holiday commonly begins with communal prayers at major mosques or other prayer sites after a predetermined amount of money is set aside as alms.
