Eid al-Fitr means ‘ festival of breaking the fast’ and it marks the end of Ramadan. Just like Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr starts with the sighting of the new moon, and Muslims wait till the evening before Eid to be sure of the date.
Each year, the dates for Ramadan and Eid change according to the Islamic calendar. Eid is not only a time for celebrations and feasts, but it is also a time when one remembers Allah and thank him for all that he has done for us.
Charity or zakat is offered to others on Eid as well as throughout Ramadan, so that we get the opportunity to share our joys with those who are less fortunate. Ramadan is a time for introspection, which brings us closer to Allah.
Here are some wishes and messages which you can send to friends and family on the occasion of Eid:
May Allah open the doors of happiness for you. Eid Mubarak to you and your family.
This is the day when we should pay gratitude to the divine light for all the wonderful things around us. Eid Mubarak!
