Eid ul-Fitr: End of Ramadan

Tomorrow, for the Muslims is Eid ul-Fitr or Id-ul-Fitr (in Arabic: عيد الفطر ‘Īdu l-Fiṭr‎), often abbreviated to Eid, is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of the Holy month of Ramadan, coincident with first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal.

Eid is an Arabic word meaning “festivity”, while Fiṭr means “to break the fast” festivity symbolising the breaking of the fasting period.

Muslims are commanded by the Qur’an to complete their fast on the last day of Ramadan and then recite the Takbir prayer all throughout the period of Eid.The fasting period observed Holy month of Ramadan hard proved metabolism. We do recommand not to exceed with the food in this period, specially in first days after Ramadan, to let the body accustoms again to the usual feeding.

Eid ul-Fitr is a three day celebration and is sometimes also known as the “Smaller Eid” (Arabic: العيد الصغير al-‘īdu ṣ-ṣaghīr‎) as compared to the Eid ul-Adha that lasts four days and is called the “Greater Eid” (Arabic: العيد الكبير al-‘īdu l-kabīr‎). Common greetings during this Eid ul-Fitr are the Arabic greeting ‘Īd mubārak (“Blessed Eid”) or ‘Īd sa‘īd (“Happy Eid”). So we wish to everybody:

‘Īd mubārak عيد مبارك
