Eid-al-Fitr is a three-day-long festivity that follows after Ramadan. The Muslim community worldwide celebrates this occasion by dressing up, preparing delicious meals, and giving alms (Zakat-al-Fitr).


Just like the holy month of Ramadan, Eid is a special time for Muslims. After engaging in a month-long fasting period, Muslims are blessed with this joyous event that unites people and bestows them with the religious fervor to help those in need.

The night before Eid is spent selecting clothes, jewelry items, and other accessories. Women also apply henna or mehndi on their hands and prepare special desserts to mark this celebration. Let’s have a look at how Eid-al-Fitr is celebrated around the world.
