Why Eid-ul-Fitr Ceases the End of Ramadan?
Meaning & Origin:
The word eid, however, has evolved to mean a festivity. The word Fitr is the root of the word iftar (breaking the fast) and denotes the end of the fasting month.
It was originated by Prophet Muhammad (P.b.u.h). The date goes back to when the Prophet arrived in Madinah, he saw people celebrating two days in fun and recreation. At that, Prophet remarked that days of festivity and better off called them ‘Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Azha’ that globally marks the end of Ramadan.
How is Eid-ul-Fitr celebrated by Muslims?
When Ramadan ends, the celebration of Eid is carried out the very next day by waking up firstly to the dawn prayer and by wearing best clothes for the Eid prayer. To eat few dates on the day is Sunnah and then people continue to their family gatherings with love and Eid greetings.
Delicious dishes are prepared and are sent to neighbors to share happiness. Some sweets and money are given to the children as ‘Eidi’ and various gifts to friends.
What do the end of Ramadan demands?
The end of Ramadan demands getting connected with family, friends, kindness to parents, empathy for the poor and benevolence to the neighbor. It’s a day of special thanksgiving. Some Muslims also see the poor and give them special charity ‘Zakaat al-Fitr’. Many of us also visit graveyards to remember the dead ones.
Why is this Eid called ‘Sweet Eid’?
Of course, because we become a sweet tooth on this festival by having sweet treats from everyone and making special sweet dishes early in the morning such as pastries, cakes, kheer, Siwaiyan, cookies etc.
