Many Muslims are fasting from dawn to dusk for the month of Ramadan.

The traditional Eid greeting is to say "Eid Mubarak". An announcement from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is awaited, where the sunset time has approached. The King and the Crown Prince also received several similar cables from the Muslim rulers and leaders. To which the response is 'allah razı olsun'. or "may God bless you'".

The Grand Mufti of Australia, Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohamed, wished the Muslim community a joyful and blessed Eid al Fitr and encouraged the community to "engage with their neighbors and friends in displaying the 'true and peaceful image of Islam, and the true spirit of being an Australian Muslim".
