What is Eid Al Fitr?

Eid ul Fitr is a religious festival for all Muslims around the world. Eid al-Fitr marks the end of holy month of Ramadan. Eid al Fitr is Allah's reward for believers who fasted during the holy month of Ramadan. This is also believers thanking Allah for giving them the chance and the strength to carry out His commands during the blessed month of Ramadan. Traditionally, Eid al Fitr is celebrated for three days in almost all Muslim countries.

Both Eid ul Fitr and Eid Al-Adha have great significance in Islam as the same is evident from the following Hadith:

“Allah has given you better than those feasts (festivals of non-believers): the ‘Eid-ul-Adha’ and ‘Eid-ul-Fitr’”
