Blogger4Ever Wishes Happy Eid Al-Fitr EID MUBARAK To Everyone

Eid-Al-Fitr is the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal. It marks the end of Ramadan, Which is a month of Fasting and Prayer. Many Muslims attend communal Prayers, listen to a Khutbah (Sermon) and give Zakat al-Fitr (charity in the form of food) during Eid Al-Fitr.

Eid is an Arabic word meaning "Festivity", while Fitr means "Breaking the Fast" and so the holiday symbolizes the breaking of the fasting period. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. It is celebrated after the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan, on the first day of Shawwal.

Eid Al-Fitr is a day of joy and thanksgiving. On this day, Muslims show their joy for health, strength and opportunities of life, which ALLAH has given them to fulfill their obligations of fasting and other good deeds during the month of Ramadan. It is considered unholy to fast on this day. It is day of forgetting old grudges and ill feelings towards others.

The end of Ramadan is marked by all Muslims going to Morning Prayer (Namaz) Services and then Islamic Holiday Eid Al-Fitr begins.

The Night Preceding Eid Al-Fitr - The night before Eid Al-Fitr is regarded as a very blessed night and Muslims believe that should be spent in nafl (voluntary) Salat (Prayers) and worship. There will be no Taraweeh Prayers on this last night of Ramadan, but a devout Muslim will spend the night in prayer, remembrance of ALLAH and reading the Quran.

Before the Eid Al-Fitr salat, Muslims will be sure to pay the "Sadakah Al-Fitr." This is money due to the poor and the needy. Every Muslim must pay this. Sadakah Al-Fitr is fairly small amount of money equal to 1.75 Kilograms of wheat for every person in the family.

Preparing To Go To Eid Al-Fitr Salat - The morning of Eid Al-Fitr, it is considered Sunnah (consistent with the ways of the Prophet Muhammad "P.B.U.H") to perform certain acts in preparation of thanking ALLAH for a blessed Ramadan. These acts include:

Wake up early in the morning and take a bath.
Brush the teeth with a Miswak.
Wear the best available clothes.
Wear perfume (men only).
Eat few dates before the Eid Prayer.
Recite the following Takbir in the low voice while going to Eid Prayer; "Allaho-Akbar, Allaho-Akbar. La Ila-ha ill-lal-lah. Allaho-Akbar, All-Lilahill Hamd."

Means, "Allah is great, Allah is great. There is no god but Allah. Allah is great, Allah is great. And all praises are for Allah" is recited to honor and glorify the greatness of ALLAH.

Eid Al-Fitr Salat (Prayers)

Eid al-Fitr has a particular salat (Islamic Prayer) consisting of two raka'ah (units) and generally offered in an open field or large hall. It may only be performed in congregation (Jama'at), Imam will lead the salat and has an additional extra six Takbirs (raising of the hands to the ears while saying "Allahu Akbar" [God Is Great]), three of them in the beginning of the first raka'ah and three of them just before ruku in the second raka'ah.

Muslims believe that they are commanded by God, as mentioned in the Quran, to continue their fast until the last day of Ramadan and pay the Zakat and Fitra before doing the Eid Prayer.

The Eid Prayer Khutbah (Sermon)

The Khutbah is regarded as an inspirational event and it involves praising ALLAH. Muslims should listen intensely and reverently to what the Imam has to say. It is regarded as a time to remember Allah's blessings and to be thankful to be present in such an assembly. Muslims should not leave the Eid Prayer early, they should stay until after the final Dua is said; then, it's customary to greet everyone with a Congratulations or "Eid Mubarak".

After the Eid Prayer, Muslims usually scatter to visit various families and friends, give gifts (especially to children), and make phone calls to distant relatives to give well-wishes for the holiday. These activities traditionally continue for three days. In most Muslim countries, the entire 3-day period is an official government/school holiday.
