Eid ul Fitr is a celebratory occasion that Muslims mark the end of Ramadan with. It denotes the end of a whole month of spiritual cleansing that the Muslims have gone through and lands on the 1st of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic Lunar Calendar. Generally muslim’s will celebrate with lavish feasts and buy new clothes on the occasion and celebrate. While food is important on Eid, there are also religious obligations connected to the festival which see Muslims give thanks to Allah for giving them the strength to get through the month of Ramadan. As well as forgiveness, self-reflection, and undertaking peaceful contemplation, Muslims are also required to give to charity by way of Fitrana – an obligatory charity which is to be paid prior to Eid-ul Fitr. Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need.
The Eid day starts early when Muslims, first and foremost, gather at mosques, plazas or outdoor squares to perform prayers in new clothes which have been given to them. Immediately after, they wish each other a peaceful and prosperous Eid Mubarak before sharing, with family and friends, the food they have prepared.
