Eid -ul-Fitr Mubarak: India is a country that is home to different religions, cultures, traditions, ethnicities, and practices. Due to this, the country observes several festivals throughout the year, Eid-ul-Fitr being one among them.Eid-ul-Fitr is the earlier of the two official holidays celebrated within Islam. The religious holiday is celebrated by Muslims worldwide because it marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan. It falls on the first day of Shawwal in the Islamic calendar. The holiday is known under various other names in different languages and countries around the world. The day is also called Lesser Eid, or simply Eid.
The festival holds mighty importance to people celebrating. The occasion marks the end of the Islamic holy month fasting of Ramadan. It is believed that Prophet Muhammad got the first revelation of the Holy Quran this month.
Eid-ul-Fitr was originated by the Islamic prophet Muhammad. According to certain traditions, these festivals were initiated in Medina after the migration of Muhammad from Mecca. Anas, a well-known companion of the Islamic prophet, narrated that, when Muhammad arrived in Medina, he found people celebrating two specific days in which they entertained themselves with recreation and merriment. At this, Muhammad remarked that Allah had fixed two days of festivity: Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-al-Adha.This occasion has a unique salat (Islamic prayer), consisting of two rakats (units), and is usually offered in a large hall or open field. It is to be performed only in a congregation (Jama’at) and has added six Takbirs (raising of the hands to the ears while saying “Allāhu Akbar” which means “God is the greatest”); three at the beginning of the first raka and the remaining three before ruku in the second raka’ah in the Hanafi school of Sunni Islam.
When Is Eid-ul-Fitr?
This year, Eid-Ul-Fitr is expected to begin on May 2, 2022, and will end on May 3, 2022. However, the actual date may vary as per the moon sighting. Eid-Ul-Fitr signifies the end of fasting from dawn to dusk throughout Ramadan and the beginning of the Shawwal month.
Followers of Islam across the world celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, which translates to “festival of breaking the fast”, after observing a month-long fast from dawn to sunset during the holy period of Ramadan.
This year, the joyous festival will begin in India from the evening of May 2 and will end on the evening of May 3. The exact dates of the month-long fast in the Islamic calendar are tied to the movements of the Moon.
Eid-ul-Fitr is usually celebrated in a grand manner, and considered to be the biggest Eid celebrations in a year. It is observed to thank Allah for bestowing strength and courage during the month-long fasting.
On this special occasion, people wake up early in the morning, chant daily prayers, take a bath and wear new clothes. They prepare special delicacies such as biryani, haleem, kebabs and seviyan.
The festivities of Eid begin only after the crescent moon is seen. Eid ul-Fitr implies the breaking of the fasting time frame, which goes on for a month. The festival is celebrated over three days and is also called Choti Eid. Following the Sunnah, which is the record of teachings of the Prophet Mohammad, Muslims wake up early in the morning, chant their Salat ul-Fajr (daily prayers), take a bath, and wear ittar (perfume). It is a custom to eat a hearty breakfast before people head to perform the special congregational prayers. Many Muslims also recite the takbir, which is the declaration of faith, on their way to the prayer ground and take part in Zakat al-Fitr (charitable contributions).
It is also considered really auspicious if people start the day by eating something sweet in the morning. Hence, this Eid is known as Meethi Eid. Delicacies like Sevaiyaan, Phirni, and Kheer are prepared in all homes.
Women also apply henna on their hands and wear new clothes. Children get their share of Eidi(money) on this day from their family elders, which makes the festival all the more special for them. To mark the end of month-long fasting, lavish feasts are organized in homes.
