EID Explained – A Beginers Guide


Eid is an important religious festival celebrated by Muslims around the world. It marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Eid is a time for celebration and joy, and it is celebrated with great enthusiasm and fervor.

Eid al-Fitr, which means “festival of breaking the fast” in Arabic, is celebrated on the first day of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic lunar calendar. This year, Eid al-Fitr will be celebrated on May 13th in most countries.

The celebration begins with a special prayer called Salat al-Eid or Eid prayer. Muslims gather in large groups at mosques or open areas to perform this prayer. After the prayer, people exchange greetings and gifts with their family and friends.

The traditional greeting for Eid is “Eid Mubarak” which means “blessed Eid” in Arabic. People also exchange sweets and other treats as part of their celebrations.

On this day, Muslims also give charity to those who are less fortunate than them as an act of worship to Allah (God). This charity is known as Zakat al-Fitr or Fitra and it must be given before performing the Eid prayer.

In some countries, people celebrate by wearing new clothes and attending special events such as carnivals or parades. In others, people may go out for meals or visit family members who live far away from them.

No matter how it is celebrated, Eid al-Fitr is a time for joyous celebration among Muslims all over the world. It marks a time when families come together to celebrate their faith and enjoy each other’s company after a month of fasting during Ramadan.

Eid al-Fitr also serves as an important reminder that Allah (God) has blessed us with many blessings throughout our lives and that we should be thankful for them all year round. It reminds us to be generous towards others and to always strive to do good deeds in order to please Allah (God).
