Eid/Id Ul Fitr is the most important festival in
the Muslim calendar.
Id Ul Fitr is a festival that marks the end of the Ramzan period, and
usually falls on a new moon night, in the month of April or May. Ramzan
is the ninth month in the Muslim calendar. According to legend, the Holy
Koran was revealed in this month. Ramzan is thus regarded as highly
auspicious month and fasting and prayers mark it. Muslims keep a fast
every day during Ramzan. The rituals associated with Id and Ramzan have
remained unchanged for centuries. Muslims through out the world and in
India observe fast throughout this month and eat and drink only in the
night. All types of entertainments and ceremonies are shunned during
this period as it is exclusively meant to dedicate oneself to Allah and
show devotion by prayers at all the prescribed times, reciting Quran and
celebrating nights with feasts and family get- together.
