The new moon (hilal) of Syawal the 10th month of the Islamic calendar was observed on Thursday, 8th August 2013. Meaning after sunset the 8th of August is the 1st of Syawal.

It is the day of victory, a day of triumph for Muslims that have gone through a month of fasting. It is a day of a “rebirth” of the soul.  A soul purified through a whole month of dedication in praying, in dzikir (remembrance of God) all for the purpose of seeking taqwa or God-conciousness.
