Eid al-Fitr follows the sighting of the new moon which signifies the end of the fast in the month of Ramadan. On the Islamic calendar, Eid al-Fitr (Feast of Breaking the Fast) is celebrated before Eid al-Ad’ha. Eid means recurring happiness or festivity.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, when the Holy Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him (PBUH), through the Angel Gabriel. It is the month of fasting, when all healthy adult Muslims should fast from sunrise to sunset.
