Eid al-Fitr is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of the month long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan. The month of contemplation and prayers linking to God. This year, Eid al-Fitr will begin on the evening of Saturday 23 May and end on the evening of Sunday 24 May. Muslims across the world begin Eid celebrations by partaking in communal dawn prayers in mosques, followed by a short sermon. They spend the day visiting relatives and neighbours and accepting sweets as they move around from house to house. Children, dressed in new clothes, are offered gifts and money to celebrate the joyous occasion. Traditionally, Muslims wish to each other Eid Mubarak (Blessed Eid) and support poverty-stricken people as a part of social solidarity (Zakaat al-Fitr).
