Celebration of Eid ul-Fitr around the World


MNA Editorial Desk: With hard followings of the teaching of the Islam, Ramadan is completed and it is time to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with Muslims around the world.

Millions of Bangladeshi Muslims begin to celebrate Eid ul-Fitr on Monday, the festive celebration marking the end of Ramadan, which is the month of fasting and abstinence from worldly pleasures.

Eid-ul-Fitr starts when the new moon is spotted in the sky, making the Eid holiday different around the world.

Around the world, Muslims gather on the first day of Shawwal–the month following Ramadan on the Islamic calendar–for the Eid prayer to worship and thank Allah for completing their month-long fast, blessings bestowed upon them, and renewed faith.

Afterwards, celebrations begin with family and friends at mosques, parks, community centers, family fun centers, restaurants, and homes. Special treats like festive lights, games, new clothing, toys, and fireworks are all part of the fun!

As with any joyous occasion, food is a big part of the Eid, and Muslims go all out, especially with candies and pastries. Fasting on this day is not allowed.
