Eid-ul-Fitr 2021

The word Eid-ul-Fitr is derived from two Arabic words Eid and Fitr meaning feast and breaking fast respectively. Muslims all around have two canonical and holy festivals. One is Eid-ul-Fitr and the other is Eid-ul-Adha 2021.

 Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated at the end of the holy month of Ramadan and on the first three dates of Shawwal which is the 10th month of the Islamic Lunar calendar. The exact dates are always unknown because of the fact that the last fast is sometimes on the 29th and sometimes on the 30th  of Ramadan.

Why Eid-ul-Fitr is Celebrated?

Islam has five pillars of faith. The fourth pillar is sawm, which is Arabic for fasting. The Muslims have to fast for the whole month of Ramadan, in order to fulfill the command of testing their patience for Almighty Allah’s will. In reward for fasting and forbearance, they get to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr.

The first thing to do on the day of Eid-ul-Fitr is to pay fitrana. Fitrana is a religious practice in which the eligible Muslims pay a certain amount as charity to the needy Muslim brothers before the Eid prayers.
