Greetings on Eid


Eid Mubarak


Greetings to all on festive occasion of Eid !!

Eid is a day of merriment and thanksgiving. Members of the Muslim community celebrate by gathering with friends and family, preparing delicacies, wearing new clothes, giving each other gifts and putting up lights and other decorations in their homes.

Eid -ul-Fitr  "festival of breaking of the fast"), also called Feast of Breaking the Fast, Eid, is an important religious festival celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramazan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). The religious Eid is a single day and Muslims are not permitted to fast on that day. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramazan. The day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month of Shawwal. This is a day when Muslims around the world show a common goal of unity. The date for the start of any lunar Hijri month varies based on the observation of new moon by local religious authorities, so the exact day of celebration varies by locality.
