New Delhi: Eid-ul-Fitr or Eid-al-Fitr is one of the most important festivals for the Muslim community. It marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan as well as the month-long fasting.
The actual date of the festival varies as per the sighting of the moon. This year it will be celebrated on May 14. The crescent moon of the month of Shawwal marks the end of Ramadan. The first day of Shawwal is celebrated as Eid-ul-Fitr. This festival is celebrated by Muslims across the globe. They wear new clothes on the day, offer prayers and enjoy feasts.
In India, the new moon is sighted generally a day after Saudi Arabia. While the West follows the Gregorian calendar, the Islamic calendar is lunar which means it is based on the sighting of the crescent moon. The ninth month in the Islamic Lunar Calendar is Ramadan and the tenth is Shawwal whose first day is marked as Eid-ul-Fitr.
Eid ul-Fitr signifies the breaking of fast and beginning the new month on a sweet note. During Ramadan, Muslims follow teachings of Allah sanctifying their souls of vices and other impurities. Many Muslims read the Quran during the month of Ramadan, thus Eid al-Fitr is a day of revelry and merriment after strict abstinence.
In view of the deadly second wave of the pandemic, people are advised to stay indoors this and celebrate Eid ul Fitr at home. Celebrate this day by sending these messages, wishes and greetings to your loved ones and invoke the festive spirit.
