Eid-ul-Fitr Day 2021: Eid-ul-Fitr is considered one of the most joyful festivals in the Muslim community. Muslims all over the world come together to celebrate it with denunciation. It also hides the end of the Islamic holy month of fasting or Ramadan. The festival falls on the first day of the month of Shawwal, and no fast is observed on that day.
This year, the calendar lists Eid ul-Fitr on May 12, Wednesday. In general, the Muslim community in India celebrates the festival the next day rather than in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, Eid ul-Fitr will be celebrated on May 13, Thursday in India.
Eid-ul-Fitr 2021: Date, history, significance, and significance
Eid ul-Fitr means an opportunity to break the fast. The day is to express gratitude to Almighty God for all that we have. It is believed that Muslims have been commanded by Allah to continue fasting until the last day of Ramadan. According to the Holy Quran, devotees should pay Zakat al-Fitr before offering Eid prayers.
On this day, Muslims get up early, sing salat ul-fajr (daily prayers), wash, put on new clothes, and apply ittar (perfume). It is customary to have a delicious breakfast before the people offer special prayers for the congregation. Many Muslims also recite the takbir, which is a declaration of faith, on their way to prayer and participate in zakat al-fitr (offerings).
While the festival is marked by reunions with family and friends, with the restrictions on closing the existing covid-19 barriers, Eid this year is expected to be low among anti-social rituals.
