What is Eid Ul Fitr? Ramadan and Eid Quiz

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.
