Eid-al-Fitr, also known as Eid-ul-Fitr or Meethi Eid is a religious festival that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. It is a time for Muslims to come together and celebrate with friends and family.


According to Islamic Calendar, Eid-al-Fitr always falls on the first day of Shawwal month. However, the exact date of Eid-ul-Fitr is decided after the moon sighting.



The exact date of Eid-al-Fitr in India is not confirmed yet because it will be announced after the moon sighting. However, it is likely that this year, Eid-al-Fitr will be celebrated on 10 or 11 April 2024 in the country.


Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated in different countries around the world, but all share a common celebration of Allah’s reward to believers who have endured rigorous fasting during the month of Ramadan. It is a time of joy and celebration.


Each country has its own unique way to mark the festival of Eid. In some countries, families gather to attend lavish parties with traditional foods and celebrations. In others, people take to the streets to participate in colorful processions and parades. It is also a time for Muslims to express their gratitude for Allah’s gift and guidance during the holy month of Ramadan.

How do Muslims celebrate Eid?


Traditionally, Eid is celebrated for three days as an official holiday in Muslim-majority countries. However, the number of holiday days varies by country.


Muslims begin Eid day celebrations by partaking in a prayer service that takes place shortly after dawn, followed by a short sermon


On their way to the prayer, which is traditionally held in an open area, Muslims recite takbeerat, praising God by saying “Allahu Akbar”, meaning “God is great”.


It is customary to eat something sweet before the prayer, such as date-filled biscuits known as maamoul in the Middle East. This particular festival is known as the “sweet” Eid – and the distribution of sweets is common across the Muslim world.


Muslims usually spend the day visiting relatives and neighbours and accepting sweets as they move around from house to house.


Each country has traditional desserts and sweets that are prepared before Eid or on the morning of the first day.
