Share your Eid experiences in the comment sections.

Eid Al-Fitr is a celebration marking the end of Ramadan.

Eid-ul-Fitr, “Eid-ul-fitr”, Eid al-FitrId-ul-Fitr, or Id al-Fitr (Arabic: ‎عيد الفطر ‘Īdu l-Fiṭr), often abbreviated to Eid, is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). The religious Eid is a single day (a Muslim is not permitted to fast that day), but it is usually celebrated for 3 days. Eid is an Arabic word meaning “festivity”, while Fiṭr means “breaking the fast”. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. The first day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month Shawwal. This is a day where Muslims around the world try to show a common goal of unity.

Samir Nasri kicked the winning goal for Manchester City, lifted his shirt which read, “Eid Mubarak”:

“Nasri secured the three points after Southampton left back Danny Fox inadvertently headed the ball to the France midfielder, who was booked for lifting his jersey in the goal celebration to reveal a t-shirt with the “`Eid Mubarak” greeting to mark the end of Ramadan.”

    Well I had to go to work after the Eid prayers as I work shifts (Eid was on Sunday here in England).

    Then having finished work in the evening I head over to my mum’s with wife and kid.
    Then after the party I head over to my friend’s for some PS3 action until the early hours.
    Anyway Eid Mubarak forever!

    Typical Indonesian Eid here. Fled to hometown since the day before Eid. Paid zakat (alm) to nearest masjid which was to be distributed to the poor on the night before Eid. Greet friends and neighbours after Eid prayer in the open, on the next morning, shaking hands and saying the Eid blessings and ask for forgiveness from each other (proper Islamic teaching actually has this to be done just before Ramadhan. The believe is to complete our effort to “burn” our sins by fasting during the holy month, thus we could back to the state of “Fitr”, or back to our sinless nature like a newborn.) Then back at home, had the big family lined up, kneeled before our old parents, kiss their hands and ask for forgiveness from each other. Then enjoying breakfast together. Give kids little sum of money each (this is not an Islamic tradition actually, but Chinese, called “ang pao”.) Received/pay visits from some of our neighbours and relatives almost all day long (while in rural areas this can happen all week long!) Read bombardments of Eid text messages in the mobile phone. Occasionally watch movies on cable tv, play video games with nephews, more eating and eating. Eid l Fitr to us is about sharing happiness and reinforcing relationship with family, neighbours, relatives, friends, and the poor around us. Wish we could share the joy with every one else around the world!

    Samir Nasri plays for Manchester City, not Manchester United. Those 2 teams hate each other

    Eid Mubarak everyone! My experience? Well last night I was deployed on a secret mission deep into enemy territory at the local park with my 3 brothers a friendly game of basketball. on one play my 5’10” self attempted to snatch the rebound away from my 6’1″ little brother. i ended up landing on his foot and twisting my ankle. boy it was really bad and well, I’ve been at home all day hopping around the house. although my day improved when everyone came back from the mosque and visiting others . i hope everyone else had a better experience !

    A happy and blessed Id to all. Echoing BuddhaShrink’s sentiments, here’s looking forward to a world filled with peace and happiness. God Almighty bless us all.

  • Very happy Eid – al Fitr!!!

    May the end of this Ramadan mark new beginnings and efforts towards, respect, understanding, compassion and kindness towards Muslims and their religion: Islam. Bigotry and hatred no longer have a place in this world; besides, bigotry and hatred will eat you alive. Love, kindness and compassion will keep you young; at least young in spirit!

    Happy Eid – al Fitr! and
