 Eid al fitr filled with happiness

The Muslim lunar calendar means that Eid al-Fitr may fall in any season of the year. It is observed on the first three days of Shawwl, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar, and celebrates the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting. The performing of community prayer (alt) at dawn on its first day distinguishes it from Eid al-Adha, Islam’s other holy festival. Eid al-Fitr is a time of public celebrations and private visits, during which friends meet one another, exchange gifts, don new clothing, and pay respects at the graves of loved ones.
