Eid al Fitr 2018 will be celebrated on Friday, 15th of June 2018.
Eid ul Fitr is celebrated on the 1st of Shawwal, after the month of Ramadan 2018. The month of Ramadan is full of celebration and festivity as the Muslims immerse themselves in reading the Quran and Duas and spending maximum time doing Dhikr. The month of Ramadan culminates with the festive occasion of Eid al Fitr as Muslims thank Allah (SWT), celebrating the festival with religious fervour.
At the end of the month, the Muslims are rewarded with the festival of Eid al Fitr. It is important to note that it is forbidden to fast on the day of Eid.
Many Muslims attend communal prayers and listen to a khutba or sermon on the first day of the month of Shawwal. These prayers are held outside or in large venues, such as sports arenas, in some places. Many Muslims may travel far to participate in these activities. Some communities organize different festivities, such as communal meals or events for children, on this day.
