Eid Mubarak!


Eid Mubarak!

Eid ul-Fitr, which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan will be celebrated world over on the 7th of July this year. This is more than just a celebration for the Muslims, it is has a lot to do with the communal and moral aspects of the fast, which expresses many of the basic values of Islam i.e., empathy for the poor, charity, worship, steadfastness, patience etc. After a month of fasting during Ramazan, Muslims eagerly await Eid celebrations which are known for being a food extravaganza.
 


Eid is an Arabic word which means celebration while Fitr means to break the fast. Thus, the holy festival symbolizes breaking the fast and everything that's evil within us. Eid stands for harmony, peace and brotherhood. Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated for over three days. Early in the morning on the first day of Eid, the call to prayer echoes from mosques across the cities, and Muslims gather to pray in vast numbers. To accommodate the worshiping masses, prayer rugs are laid down outside of mosques and into the streets.

 


A national holiday in India, Eid-ul-Fitr sees people gathering at the Jama Masjid mosque in New Delhi to offer their prayers to the lord. On this special day, the Muslims relish in food delights like the popular Biryani and other sweet delicacies. Most of them indulge in Eid celebrations by preparing a special dish - the 'Siwaiyaan'.
 


Siwaiyaan is actually made of toasted sweet vermicelli noodles, dried fruits, and milk. This is the day when people send Eid-ul-Fitr cards to their loved ones and convey their best wishes and prayers for their well being.
 


You may celebrate Eid by shopping around for new clothes. Go gift shopping for your family members and friends. This holy occasion is all about giving and spreading happiness around. Rare occasions like these do not come often so, make sure you are prepared to look your best and are ready to celebrate!
