June 25 – 26 Upon seeing the half-moon, the leaders of the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama declare the end of the fasting and beginning of Eid. Although scheduled for June 25, 2017, the date may change depending on the sighting of the moon. The day after the sighting, Muslims pray before breakfast, while in Colombo they congregate at the Galle Face Green. Later, meals are shared with family, neighbours and friends, while relatives are visited.
