Happy Eid al-Fitr 2019
At the first sighting of a new moon, Muslims all over the world will celebrate Eid-al Fitr.
Eid al-Fitr was originated by the Islamic prophet Muhammad. It is observed on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal at the end of the month of Ramadan, during which Muslims undergo a period of fasting.
The religious occasion, which means “Festival of Breaking the Fast,” is a key date in the Islamic calendar as it marks the end of Ramadan and its month-long fast.
Usually celebrated over three days, Eid ul-Fitr sees Muslims enjoy a large meal following the fast period. The festival is also a time for forgiveness and making amends.
During this time, well-wishers often greet each other by saying “Eid Mubarak” – which means “happy holiday”.
How is it celebrated
Eid is celebrated by family and friends getting together and many will also attend special Eid prayers in the morning.
It is traditional for people to wear new clothes, in particular children, and for loved ones and neighbours to visit each other to exchange good wishes.
