what is Eid? When directly translated, the Eid meaning is Ã¢Â€Âœthe festival of breaking the fastÃ¢Â€Â and commemorates the end of a month-long fast throughout Ramadan for Muslims in the UK and around the world. The festival is a very important time in Islam and allows families, loved ones and communities to come together and celebrate following a month of abstinence and dedication to Allah (SWT).
This is important because it marks the end of Ramadan, the month in which the Holy QurÃ¢Â€Â™an was first revealed to Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). Throughout Ramadan, Muslims around the world undertake a fast between the hours of sunset and sunrise and spend a lot of time in self-reflection while studying the QurÃ¢Â€Â™an and connecting with Allah (SWT) on a spiritual level. After a full month of sacrifice and dedication, Eid ul-Fitr is a time to come together with family and loved ones to enjoy everyday blessings.
