Eid ul-Fitr, often abbreviated as Eid, is a significant religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide. It marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. The holiday begins with the sighting of the new moon, which varies depending on the lunar calendar.

Eid ul-Fitr is a joyous occasion where Muslims come together to pray, feast, and engage in acts of charity. It’s a time for family and community gatherings, exchanging gifts, and expressing gratitude for the blessings received during Ramadan.

Traditional customs include attending special prayers at mosques, wearing new clothes, giving Zakat al-Fitr (charity given to the poor before the Eid prayers), and enjoying special meals with family and friends. The atmosphere during Eid is filled with happiness, generosity, and spiritual renewal.

Eid ul-Fitr is not only a religious celebration but also a time for reflection on one’s spiritual journey during Ramadan and a chance to strengthen bonds with loved ones and the community.
