Eid al fitr - 20th September

Eid al-Fitr Arabic: عيد الفطر (also spelled Eid ul-Fitr) is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting. The word Fitr means "to break", which symbolizes the breaking of the fasting period and of all evil habits.

Muslims are commanded to complete their fast on the last day of Ramadan and then recite the Takbir all throughout the period of Eid.

The first Eid was celebrated in 624 CE by the Prophet Muhammad with his friends and relatives after the victory of the battle of Jang-e-Badar.

Muslims are not only celebrating the end of fasting, but thanking Allah for the help and strength that he gave them throughout the previous month to help them practice self-control.

The festival begins when the first sight of the new moon is seen in the sky.

The celebratory atmosphere is increased by everyone wearing best or new clothes, and decorating their homes.

Eid is also a time of forgiveness, and making amends, spiritual renewal, as well as celebration and feasting with friends and relatives.
Eid Mubarak!
