Eid-ul-Fitr: a festival of peace and harmony

Eid-ul-Fitr is the biggest festival in the Muslim religion. It is more commonly called as Eid. To Muslims, it is as important as Diwali is to Hindus, and Christmas is to Christians. It is celebrated all over the world. Since India is the land of festivals, so here too, Eid is celebrated with great zeal and vehemence. According to Islamic beliefs, the Holy Quran was first revealed to Prophet Muhammad by the archangel Gabriel during the sacred month of Ramadan. It is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Eid marks the end of Ramadan.
 
Moreover, during the whole month, Muslims observe fasts after the site of the crescent moon of Ramzan. The fasts are so-called as Roza. For observing Roza, people have their meal before the dawn (sehri) and after that do not eat or drink anything till dusk (iftari), water is no exception. As, they believe that the month gives them a chance to purify their souls. In this month, they ask for forgiveness for every sin or mistake. Every day they read Namaz. They also do charity called Zakat. The whole month is no less than a festival itself.

They don new clothes and put on alluring fragrances called 'Itr'. After getting ready, men gather at mosques or open places called Eidgah. Before performing Eid prayer, money is paid to the poor and needy as an act of charity. Then the Namaz for Eid is read. After the Eid prayer, everyone greets each other 'Eid Mubarak'. People embrace their friends and relatives with the greetings of Eid. Children often receive money from elders as 'Eidi'. Sweets are distributed and delicious dishes are prepared.
