Eid al-Fitr will take place this weekend, marking the end of the month of Ramadan. Throughout Ramadan, Muslims have undertaken a month of fasting, and so Eid is celebrated with lavish meals and sweet treats.
Eid will take place either on today, on Sunday, May 24, after the crescent moon was not spotted on Friday.
The crescent moon signifies the beginning of the new month, and so will mean the end of Ramadan and the beginning of the month of Shawwal – and also of Eid al-Fitr.
This Eid may feel strange for many, as the usual traditions of attending mosque, visiting friends and family and sharing gifts are restricted under lockdown rules.
Mosques are closed, and social gatherings banned, meaning many celebrations and prayers have turned online this holiday.
Khair in Arabic means goodness and so this then wishes goodwill on the person who greeted you.
Another response could be to say Jazak Allah Khair which means May Allah reward you with goodness.
More greetings for Eid al Fitr are
May the New Moon bring energy and positivity into your life
May the festival of breaking the fast put all the magic of love and happiness together
May the holy month of the revelation of Quran usher upon you peace, happiness and prosperity! Eid Mubarak
Eid Mubarak to you and your family. May the guidance and blessings of Allah be with you and your family!
With all the love, blessings, and peace on this joyous day. Happy Eid al-Fitr
