Eid is also called the “Festival of Breaking the Fast”. It is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan. This religious Eid is the first and only day in the month of Shawwal during which Muslims are not permitted to fast.
Eid ul-Fitr May 2021: Date
Traditionally, the tenth month begins with the sighting of the crescent moon in the sky. Hence, the sighting of the moon on the last day of Ramadan confirms the observance of Eid al-Fitr for the next day. In India, Eid-al-Fitr will be celebrated on May 13, 2021.
On this occasion, Muslims dress up and gather together at the mosque for a particular salat (Islamic prayer) that consists of two rakats and later spend the day with their loved ones, embracing and wishing one another ‘Eid Mubarak’.
