Ramadan is the month of fasting for Muslims. They fast during the hours of daytime. This means that in summer we have to fast longer than in Winter. At the end of Ramadan everything is let loose and Muslims celebrate the end of the fast with more prayer, giving to the poor and so on.
After a month of fasting, Eid is a relief and a blessing in more ways than one. Sharing that blessing with family and friends, sharing gifts and food, is a great way to get back to your roots.
Bismillah ar Rahman ar Rahim
Eid ul Fitr, also known as Id al Fitr, marks the end of Holy month of Ramadan/Ramzan. Muslims all over the world fast during the month of Ramadan – as prescribed in the holy Quran.
Apart from the regular prayers, feasts, and exchange of gifts – Muslims are also encouraged on this day to forgive and forget any past animosities that may have occurred with others during the year.
Different Names of Eid ul Fitr
