Eid Al Fitr 2017, A Really Special Day for Muslims


    The end of the holy month of Ramadan marks the start of the celebration and festivity for Muslims all across the world. Unlike other religions, Muslims follow their own Islamic lunar calendar. This calendar determines the dates by the movement of moon. With every new moon (first day of crescent) a new Islamic month is started. Ramadan is the ninth month of Islamic year while Eid al fitr is celebrated on the first day of the 10th Islamic month i.e. Shawaal.

    Why Do Muslims Celebrate Eid?

    Muslims spend the month of Ramadan in fasting to thank God for all His blessings. Moreover, according to Muslims, it is the holy month of Ramadan when their Holy book Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). That is yet another great reason to celebrate for them. As the fasting month ends, Muslims celebrate to show their love and happiness.
