Eid-ul-Fitr is one of the two major religious festivals of Muslims. 'Eid' means festival or joy. 'Fitr' means breaking, breaking the fast, going back to normal.

Eid-ul-Fitr is the day when Muslims return to their normal working life on the 1st of Shawwal after the month-long fasting and abstinence during the holy month of Ramadan. During the holy month of Ramadan, one strives to abstain from lust, anger, greed, infatuation, alcohol and gluttony.

Eid-ul-Fitr in Hadith

The celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr started after the migration of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) to Medina. According to a hadith narrated by Hazrat Anas (R.A.), the Prophet (S.A.W.) came to Madinah and found out that the people of Madinah were rejoicing on two days of the year. By asking, he also learned that these two days have been observed as festival days since the pre-Islamic period. The Prophet (PBUH) said to them, Allah has given you two better days instead of these two days. The two days are Eid-ul-Azha and Eid-ul-Fitr.

The festival of Eid is celebrated on the first day of the month of Shawwal, after fasting for a whole month of the holy month of Ramadan and observing the associated worship and restrictions. The program of this day includes offering Eid prayers in congregation, distribution of Fitra among the poor and needy and organizing good food and drink.
