Today is the day where all Muslims gather with family and friends as it is Eid-ul-Fitr.


After completing 30 days of fasting from early morning to sunset in the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims celebrates Eid-ul-Fitr with family and friends, have a mass dinner and enjoy the day. 


At the beginning of the day, Muslims wake up early in the morning and perform ‘ghusl’ which is a ritual where you purify yourself and then after that, they attend an Eid congregation Salah in their mosques. All Muslim men are mandated to go to the Eid prayers whilst there are some women that also attends the mosque.


After the Eid prayer is done, they get back home and they may either visit a relative’s home or stay at home and invite guests to celebrate the celebration of Eid. This is a really special day for Muslims as Eid-ul-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan and it gives people the opportunity to enjoy a feast after a whole month of fasting.


Even though there are some parts of the world where some Muslims are unable to eat sufficient food, some Muslims on this day also gives to Islamic charities such as Islamic Relief or Muslim Aid, where they financially help refugees, homeless families, women and children and many others. They may build water wells, new shelters, new places of worship and food too.


Because of the COVID-19 pandemic that has disrupted almost two years of Eid-ul-Fitr, this year will have no COVID restrictions set by the government and therefore, many Muslims in the UK might enjoy this day without all the restrictions set in the two years in prior to COVID-19.


Eid Mubarak to all the Muslims that celebrate Eid!
