Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan, is celebrated this year on Tuesday or Wednesday depending on the moon sighting.

"The Astronomical New Moon is on Monday, June 3, 2019 at 10:03 Universal Time," the Fiqh Council of North America said online. "On that day, near Miami, Florida at sunset the elongation is 8 degrees and moon is 5 degrees above the sun. Therefore the first day of Shawwal 1440 is on Tuesday, June 4, 2019."

However, some countries like Bangladesh, India and Pakistan will celebrate Eid on Wednesday.

Muslims around the world will celebrate this day with prayers, by sharing gifts with family and friends and doing charity work. Eid al-Fitr traditionally begins with prayers known as Salat al-Fitr.

Typical greetings during the Eid holiday include "Eid Mubarak" which means "Blessed Eid" while another saying happens to be "Eid Said" which means "Happy Eid."

Here are some wishes and greetings to share on Eid al-Fitr:

1. "May the blessings of Allah fill your life with happiness and open all the doors of success now and always. Eid Mubarak!"

2. "May God give you happiness of heaven above. Happy Eid Mubarak To You All."

3. "May this special day bring peace, happiness and prosperity to everyone. Eid Mubarak!"

4. "May Allah's blessings be with you today, tomorrow and always. Eid Mubarak!"
