Ramadan celebrations across the globe

Soon after lent fasting and Easter comes Ramadan— a period when the Muslim community observes day-long fasting and prayers. This is also a period of family gatherings and hosting ‘daawats’ or dinners, which is dear to the Muslim communities worldwide. For Muslims who live away from home, this is the period when they visit their near and dear ones. However, for those who don’t, the community makes several arrangements which enable them to worship five times a day, and get a decent meal before dawn and after sunset.

Eid al-Fitr: a guide to the festival, which marks the end of Ramadan

After an entire month of sacrifice and fasting, Muslims prepare themselves for one of the most emblematic celebrations of their culture: Eid al-Fitr. This festival (which this year kicks off today) of breaking the fast, puts an end to Ramadan. It is believed that God rewards all those who fasted and it is also the first day of the new Islamic month of Shawwal.

During this day, Muslim greet to each other on the streets: Eid Mubarak (Happy Eid) after starting the day with a small sweet breakfast; something really enjoyable after 30 days of fasting. Then, they will give charity to the poor and will get together for the Eid prayers. During these special days, people usually dress neatly and offer gifts to their beloved, it is also a period to visit family and friends.
