Eid is on us and the holy period of Ramadan has ended which means there is a reason tp fast after the feast and the spread of food is like no other.
Eid is around the corner and the holy period of Ramadan means that post sunset, there is a feast of food like no other. The holy month of Ramadan started on April 3rd this year and ended after sighting the new moon on May 2nd marking the celebration of Eid-al-Fitr on the first day of the subsequent month, Shawwal. Eid-al-Fitr means the festival of Breaking Fast.
Eid is the day when it is time to celebrate post a month of introspection and is also when families and friends connect. During this month Muslims across the world strive to perfect their religion, make conscious efforts to focus on worship and complete a recitation of the Holy Quran.
The Eid celebration begins with the sighting of the new moon, by a donation to the poor and needy, from every adult Muslim who possesses food more than their needs, on their behalf and on behalf of dependents in their household.
Eid-al-Fitr mornings begin with a short obligatory prayer at the mosque and followed by meeting and greeting family and friends. Children and adults alike look forward to dressing up and receiving Eid gifts.
