veid ul fitr

Whether it is Easter in Christianity, Hanukkah in Judaism or Eid in Islam, people of all religions celebrate and thank God for his bounties and blessings in various ways. Muslims of Anniston area will be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, a festival at the end of the month of Ramadan, on Tuesday.

Twice a year, Muslims around the world celebrate festivals known as Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Adha.

Eid-ul-Fitr (the “festival of restoration,” pronounced “Eed-uhl-fit-her”) is celebrated at the end of the month of Ramadan to thank God for the blessed month of Ramadan and for the spiritual uplift and moral training that are gained during fasting days. Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated on the first day of the month of Shawwal, the month that follows Ramadan.
