Eid ul-Fitr or Eid, ‘The Festival of the Fast Breaking’, is just a few weeks away. Eid ul-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan – the holy month of fasting and prayer. It also connotes the beginning of the Islamic month of Shawwal, which follows Ramadan. Muslims attend communal prayers, listen to a khutba (sermon) and give zakat al-fitr (charity in the form of food) during Eid ul-Fitr, which is followed by a grand feast enjoyed by friends and family.
