Millions of Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr

Millions of Muslims all around the world will be celebrating Eid al-Fitr this week.

The festival is held to mark the end of Ramadan and it is one of the biggest celebrations in the Islamic year.

Eid al-Fitr literally means – ‘festival of the breaking of the fast’.

Ramadan

For Muslims the month of Ramadan is a time for spiritual reflection, prayer and doing good deeds. It is also a time to spend with family and friends.

During Ramadan, Muslims avoid eating from dawn until sunset for about a month.

Eid al-Fitr

On the day of Eid al-Fitr, Ramadan is officially over. Muslims often celebrate by praying, giving gifts and having a big feast with family and friends.

Eid celebrations begin when a new crescent moon appears in the evening sky, which means that Eid can be on a different day each year.
