It is exciting as well as refreshing to break your 29 to 30 days of fasting eventually with a stint off celebration. What is more exciting is the different ways you can try out to celebrate this auspicious occasion and receive well wishes and blessings from every loved person. Our ways of how to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr can be followed to make the end of Ramadan, one of the best days.
Put An End To Your Prolonged Fasting
Eid-ul-Fitr, or ‘the festival of breaking of the fast’, happens on the first and the only day of the month of Shawwal. It is the day when the Muslims or anybody who performs the holy fasting of Ramadan, finally breaks the fast and offers services to Allah regarding the same pious cause. It is essential to put an end to the fasting, in order to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr.
Chanting the ‘Takbir’ or “Allahu Akbar” before sunrise is undoubtedly, a brilliant way to start your Eid-ul-Fitr. This would help you establish a peaceful and pleasant day.
Attend Prayers and Services
Gather your loved ones and attend mosques or religious gatherings to cherish the spirit of this holy festival in ways unexplainable. Your inner strength would rise up and it is one of the best ways to appreciate Allah.
Join Hands With The Poor
In any festival, be it of any religion, offering food or clothes to the needy is the best way we can celebrate it. However, it is a tradition in Eid-ul-Fitr, which is termed as ‘zakat-al-fitr’, to provide the poor with money or clothing for support. This is a really good way to keep the entire community united and celebrate with fraternity.
Teach The Younger Members The Value Of Eid-ul-Fitr
While the younger ones must know that Eid-ul-Fitr is the celebration that brings in joy and excitement, they must also be well aware of the importance of this festival and that it teaches us lessons of solidarity and love. The elders and the younger members of the family could celebrate this festival by gulping in ‘sewain’ and discussing about the vividness of Eid-ul-Fitr!
Food and Delicacies
If you follow the traditional way, special emphasis must be provided to sweets like ‘falooda’, ‘sewain’ and ‘halwa’. Also, Eid-ul-Fitr is best known for the sweets that people eat and offer. However, there isn’t any strong rule of having just what has been prescribed traditionally. You can have whatever you love cooking!
How To Celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr By Looking Extraordinary
After the fruitful month of Ramadan, stepping gracefully into a new month isn’t a bad idea at all. It is a tradition to gift new clothes to the people we adore and provide the poor with new apparels, who otherwise cannot get it for themselves. Everybody needs to put on new garments with a smile.
Having a quality time with your loved ones is something we crave for, all year long. Festivals like Eid-ul-Fitr help us reconnect with old friends and family by rejuvenating the bonds of love, friendship and appreciation. Mass Prayers are ways to reconnect with Allah and the entire community. Having said that, it is believed that Allah demolishes all hurdles, which makes Eid one of the most cherished festivals. These ways of how to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr are simple but create a huge impact on the lives of everybody who get to be a part of it.
