Eid-ul-Fitr 2021 Significance

Eid-ul-Fitr is the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal. Fasting from dawn to dusk, the Muslim community seeks forgiveness from the Almighty for their past sins and continues to observe it for one whole month until the sighting of the moon on Chaand Raat, which is the last day of Ramadan. The next day of Chaand Raat marks the day of Eid-ul-Fitr, meaning ‘festival of breaking the fast’ in English.

Eid Namaz

The festive day begins by offering Eid prayer at the mosque, this time at home. The Islamic prayer, known as salat, comprises two units of prayer known as rakats along with six incarnations. The Eid prayer is followed by the sermon after which Muslims ask for Allah’s forgiveness, mercy, peace, and blessings for all living beings across the world.

Usually, the prayer is performed in an assembly but this time, family members might offer it in unison or individually. This is done by raising the hands to the ears while saying ‘Allahu Akbar’ which means God is the greatest.

Muslims believe that apart from fasting for a month, they are commanded by Allah to pay Zakat-al-Fitr, charity, before offering prayers on the occasion of Eid.
