- Celebrated on/during: June
Ramzan is the Islamic holy month of fasting by Muslims worldwide .Eid-ul-Fitr-The festival of Eid is celebrated at the end of the month of Ramzan. Although, during the entire month of Ramzan, alms are distributed among the poor, but on the day of Eid, just before the Namaz is read, this practice is reinforced and alms called’Fitra’ is distributed because of which this festival is also called Eid-ul-Fitr.
Muslims believe that in the Quran, Allah commands His followers to pay the ‘Zakat’ and ‘Fitra’ before offering the Eid prayers of gratitude to Allah.
