Black Muslims : Id al-Fitr

When is Eid al-Fitr?



Eid al-Fitr is held immediately after Ramadan,



Celebrations can last up to three days,



Muslims begin Eid day celebrations by partaking in the prayer service that takes place shortly after dawn, followed by a short sermon.



On their way to the prayer, which is traditionally held in an open area, Muslims recite takbeerat, praising God by saying “Allahu Akbar”, meaning “God is great”.



It is customary to eat something sweet prior to the prayer such as date-filled biscuits known as maamoul.



Eid al-Fitr is one of two major festivals celebrated by Muslims each year, the other being Eid al-Adha, which falls later in the summer and honours Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son to Allah.



It is seen as a spiritual celebration of Allah’s gift of strength and endurance. It is also a time for charity, known as Zakat al-Fitr, when people are expected to give and show kindness.



Fasting is forbidden on the day of Eid, in contrast to the 30 days that came before.





People congratulate one another as they head home after Eid prayers. They spend the day visiting relatives and neighbours, and accepting sweets as they move around from house to house.



Each country has traditional desserts and sweets that are prepared before Eid or on the morning of the first day. These foods range from special biscuits and bread to cakes and puddings.



Children, dressed in new clothes, are offered gifts and money to celebrate the joyous occasion.



In some countries, families visit graveyards to offer their respects to departed family members.



It is common for the capitals of Muslim-majority countries to decorate their cities with lights and hold festivities to commemorate the end of Ramadan.

After the 30 days of Ramadan comes Eid al-Fitr.

This great three-day feast is an opportunity for Muslims to come together to end their fasting period with a feast.

Traditionally this means eating, drinking and exchanging gifts with friends and family.

Eid Mubarak everyone!




What a Ramadan this year! Always strive for kindness, compassion, justice, righteousness and Taqwa. Ramadan is over but now we have 11 months of keeping strong in these things. Ramadan is a reminder of both the beauty and supernaturally profound nature of the Holy Qur'an, and a concentrated training ground for what we seek to cultivate year round. Fasting is about so much more than simply not having food


Eid-Al-Fitr is one of the major holidays of Islam. It comes at the end of the holy month of Ramadan and celebrates the end of the fasting. The holiday comes on the first day of the 10th month in the Islamic lunar calendar.

Because the month of Ramadan is all about fasting, Eid-Al-Fitr is all about NOT fasting. During Ramadan, Muslims have not eaten while the Sun is in the sky. On Eid-Al-Fitr, they celebrate the end of Ramadan with a sweet snack and then get ready for a day of celebration.

On this day, Muslims are encouraged to dress in their best clothes and attend a special Eid prayer at their neighborhood mosque. Before the prayer begins, Muslims make an alms payment (the Zakat al Fitr) Corner of the five pillars of Islam
Such as prayer and fasting

for the month of Ramadan, in the form of food or its cash equivalent. This food and / or money is then distributed to the poor. After the special religious service, the focus turns to gift-giving. Children are given many gifts. Women get gifts from their loved ones. Also on this day, people are encouraged to settle feuds or disputes, especially those between family members.
