Eid ul-Fitr in 2022 is on the Monday, 25th of May (25/05/2022).
Eid ul-Fitr is celebrated as the festival of breaking the fast. It is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims across the world. It marks that a month-long fasting of Ramadan is over. It begins on the first day of Shawwal, the 10th month of Islamic lunar calendar. In Islam, Eid ul-Fitr is known as "lesser Eid". It is a national holiday in many countries including India.
There are two major Eids in the Islamic calendar which are Eid ul-Fitr"Lesser Eid" which comes earlier in the year and Eid al-Adha or "Greater Eid" which comes later in the year. In the month of Ramadan, muslims keep a fast from sunrise to sundown for the complete month.
As per Quran, muslims believe that they have been commanded by God to continue their fast till the last day of Ramadan so they keep fasting till then. On Eid ul-Fitr, their fasting is over. The celebrations of Eid ul-Fitr last usually for three days when muslims feast, pray and exchange gifts. People greet each other with "Eid Mubarak". They cook seviyan and start this day by eating it. They wear new clothes. They also decorate their homes with lights and visit their relatives. Some of the muslim families also donate food to charity. Muslims are also encouraged to forgive and seek forgiveness.
