Eid Al Fitr
Eid Al Fitr is the occasion which is celebrated earlier of the two official holidays within Islam. The religious holiday is observed by Muslims all over the world because it marks the end of the holy season of Ramadan, which consists of month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting.
The Holy Quran tells us, “So verily, there is a relief with the hardship. Verily, with the hardship, there is a relief.” The holy occasion of Eid Al Fitr brings a lot of happiness and hope to people’s life.
