Muslims making merry
Eid al fitr is a festival targeted at the end of Ramadan (month of fasting) by millions of Muslims worldwide with feast, gifts and wealth of ancient traditions. Eid is a holiday dedicated to fasting and serves as “the light of the tunnel after a long and difficult month of fasting and abstaining”. Giving arms during this period is believed to purify wealth and makes wealth grow .They also believe doing good must be done to everyone, most importantly the needy because they need it more.
The word Eid al-fitr was derived from an Arabic word meaning “the feast of breaking of the fast” and is done by thanking Allah for keeping them during the Ramadan (month of fast). They believe participating in Ramadan cleanse them spiritually and also brings them more closely to Almighty Allah, the creator.
Prophet Mohammed in 624CE was the first to mark the annual Eid al- fitr festival accompanying a victory in battle. Some countries celebrate Eid earlier or later as the date is dependent on the sighting of the lunar crescent or the new moon after Ramadan,the date changes yearly and varies geographically.
