What are we celebrating?

Eid marks the ending of the month-long period of Ramadan, a time when Muslims around the world remember the month that the Qur-an, the Muslim holy book, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic year, but the exact dates of Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr vary every year as the Islamic calendar is based on the cycles of the moon. During Ramadan, Muslims fast during daylight hours. Fasting is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, along with faith, prayer, charity and making the pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca, and allows Muslims to devote themselves to Islam and come closer to Allah. Ramadan is also a time for coming together and reflection as Muslims around the world host Iftar dinners and generously donate to charity. At the end of Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr is a colourful and festive occasion which includes home decorations, mehndi (henna) art, and lots of food (especially sweets)
