Eid-ul-Fitr: Know what it is and how it's celebrated

Jun 05, 2019 13:15 IST

As the month-long Ramzan fasting comes to an end, people all over the world are celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr. Here's all you need to know about the traditions of the festival. #1 The day starts with Muslims taking a bath and wearing their finest festive attire before heading to mosques to offer namaz. #2 Muslims are also required to pay the Zakat-al-Fitr, a charitable donation before the Eid prayers. #3 The prayers are then followed by a sermon, in which the Imams thank the Almighty for the perseverance to observe fasts during Ramzan. #4 After prayers, people greet each other and chant the Eid Takbirs. Devotees then head home, to celebrate the festival with their friends and families. #6 Special dishes such as Nihari, Seviyan and Biryani are cooked and served to mark the occasion.
