Eid ul-Fitr (Arabic: عيد الفطر ‘Īdu ul-Fiṭr), often abbreviated to Eid, is a Muslim holiday that marks the end ofRamadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Eid is an Arabic word meaning “festivity”, while Fiṭr means “to break fast”; and so the holiday symbolizes the breaking of the fasting period. It is celebrated after the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan, on the first day of Shawwal.
Eid ul-Fitr is a day long celebration and is sometimes also known as the “Smaller Eid” (Arabic: العيد الصغير al-‘īdu ṣ-ṣaghīr) as compared to the Eid ul-Adha that lasts four days and is called the “Greater Eid” (Arabic: العيد الكبير al-‘īdu l-kabīr).
Muslims are commanded by the Qur’an to complete their fast on the last day of Ramadan and then recite theTakbir all throughout the period of Eid
