Muslims celebrate Eid Al Fitr as the festival of Breaking Fast. Eid Al Fitr comes right after Ramadan and is a celebration for Muslims from the world after having completed the thirty-day fasting period. It marks the end of Ramadan when Muslims finally resume their day-to-day eating schedules. 

Some traditions of Eid Al Fitr include;

  • Officially breaking your fasting states after an entire month.
  • Praying Salat Al Eid. 
  • Wearing new clothing. 
  • Meeting family and friends. 
  • Hosting/going to Eid parties. 

Other traditions can vary from country to country. Many Muslims also take time out of their holiday to remember the needy and give back to the poor. This concept is known as Zakat Al Fitr. Eid is a joyous occasion for Muslims, and they like to fully prep themselves for it. 

Women love to wear beautiful new clothing and dress up before going to meet their relatives! Eid is a unique time for families to come even closer and say goodbye to Ramadan until the next year.

As we know, remembering Allah no matter where we are or what we do is vital. After having celebrated such a Holy month as Ramadan, it is always a good idea to thank Allah for everything He has provided us. 

We can start doing this by attending an Eid prayer on the very first day in the morning. Imams everywhere enjoy holding special Eid prayers early in the mornings. Joining this prayer helps us get in touch with our faith and thank Allah. 

Plus, for an extra bonus, make sure you wish ‘Eid Mubarak’ to the people you meet in the mosque or on the way. Greetings like these will surely put you and your fellow Muslims in the best mood for Eid!

This Eid, remember to keep everyone in your thoughts. Not just your family and friends but also the ones in need. It is always important to give back and help the poor as charity is crucial. Our religion teaches us all about it. So, it is vital to do the same on Eid. 

It does not have to be a lot. Whatever you can give according to your own budget is what’s important. You can give gifts, food, or money in the name of Allah, and He shall reward you for it.
