Followers of Islam across the world celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, which translates to “festival of breaking the fast”, after observing a month-long fast from dawn to sunset during the holy period of Ramadan.
Eid-ul-Fitr is usually celebrated in a grand manner, and considered to be the biggest Eid celebrations in a year. It is observed to thank Allah for bestowing strength and courage during the month-long fasting.
On this special occasion, people wake up early in the morning, chant daily prayers, take a bath and wear new clothes. They prepare special delicacies such as biryani, haleem, kebabs and seviyan.
