Eid al-Fitr (Arabic: عيد الفطر) "festival of breaking of the fast"), also known locally as Banna Salo or Koriteh or the Lesser Eid, is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). The religious Eid is a single day during which Muslims are note
permitted to fast.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 cellebration
varies by locality. However,
in most countries, it is
the same day as Saudi Arabia.
Eid al-Fitr has a particular
Salat (Islamic prayer)
consisting of two Rakats (units) and generally offered in an open field or large hall. It may be performed only in congregation (Jama’at) and, has an additional extra six Takbirs (raising of the hands to the ears while saying "Allāhu Akbar", literally "God is greatest"),
Muslims are commanded by Allah, as mentioned in the Quran, to continue their fast until the last day of Ramadan and pay the Zakat and fitra before offering the Eid prayers.
