Eid-ul-Fitr And How It Is Celebrated
Eid-al-Fitr is an Islamic festival celebrated by Muslims all over the world to mark the conclusion of Ramadan. Although what precisely is Eid-al-Fitr?
One of two Eids in the Islamic (lunar) cycle year is Eid-al-Fitr. It marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month in which Muslims commemorate the Holy Quran’s revelation to the Prophet. On the first day of Shawwal, the celebration commemorates the end of the dawn-to-dusk fast.
Religious authorities in many nations rely on the appearance of the Eid new moon to proclaim when it will truly start since the precise date is seldom known long in advance. If the sky is excessively bright while the crescent is out, or if skies obscure it, it might be postponed by a day. This explains why Ramadan may begin on various days in different regions of the globe.
Following a month of meditation, Muslims gather with their family and friends to express thankfulness to God on Eid-al-Fitr. The occasion reminds Muslims to be thankful for whatever they have and to give to those who are less fortunate.
How it is supposed to be celebrated generally
Muslims donate a required contribution to donation (Zakat al-Fitr) in addition to offering gratitude, however, this is a lower amount than the customary 2.5-per cent zakat on which wealthier Muslims are taxed. This is another of Islam’s 5 pillars. In contrast to these contributions, some Muslims volunteer at food kitchens and distribute their personal food to people in need.
Gifting is a key component of Eid celebrations, just like it is during Eid-al-Adha. Eidi is given to children in bags of money, and delicious sweets are passed between family members, neighbours, coworkers, acquaintances, and even strangers. Members of the family will also exchange gifts, albeit the majority of these will be reserved for the family’s youngest members.
