Eid-Al-Fitr / Eid ul-Fitr / EID (Celebrating the Fast – Islamic)
Almost two billion Muslims around the world celebrate Eid ul-Fitr (eed al-fitter), the three-day festival commonly known as “Eid.” “Eid ul-Fitr” literally means the feast of the breaking/to break the fast. The holiday marks the end of Ramadan, the holy month of fasting and is a culmination of the month-long struggle towards a higher spiritual state.
