Eid-Ul-Fitr: A Celebration of the Muslim Community

One of the largest festivals of the Muslim community, Eid-Ul-Fitr, is celebrated with great enthusiasm and grandeur worldwide. This festival marks the end of the month-long fasting period known as Ramadan. During Ramadan, Muslims observe a fast from dawn till sunset, consuming a pre-dawn meal called suhur and breaking their fast with dates and water at dusk. The end of Ramadan is celebrated with the festivities of Eid-Ul-Fitr, which includes special prayers, feasting, and exchanging gifts 1.

Significance of Eid-Ul-Fitr

Eid-Ul-Fitr holds immense significance for Muslims as it marks the completion of a month of self-reflection, spiritual growth, and devotion. It is a time of joy and gratitude, where Muslims come together to express their gratitude to Allah and seek blessings for the future. The festival is an occasion for special prayers, family gatherings, gift-giving, and acts of charity 1.

Determining the Date of Eid-Ul-Fitr

The date of Eid-Ul-Fitr varies each year as it is determined by the sighting of the crescent moon. This year, Ramadan started on March 11, and the end of Ramadan, and thus the beginning of Eid-Ul-Fitr, will be decided based on the sighting of the crescent moon in Saudi Arabia. If the moon is sighted on April 9, Eid-Ul-Fitr will be celebrated on April 10. If not, then the festival will be observed on April 11 1.

Celebrations and Traditions

On the day of Eid-Ul-Fitr, Muslims gather in mosques to offer a special prayer called namaz to Allah. This prayer is followed by joyful celebrations with family and friends. Special dishes such as Biryani, Kebabs, and seviyan (sweet vermicelli) are prepared at home to be enjoyed together. It is also customary for elders to give Eidi, which is a gift of money or presents, to children in the family as a token of love and blessings.
