Eid ul Fitr 2020 History and Significance: The holy month of Ramadan is over, and the festival of Eid is being celebrated across the country today. Eid-ul-Fitr, which is celebrated at the end of Ramadan, is called Eid-ul-Fitr. This festival is seen to be very bright in the Islam community. Mosques are decorated, people wear new clothes, houses become more than one dish, the little ones are given the IDI, and the eid greetings are given by embracing each other. However, due to lockdown this year, all the people will celebrate Eid in their homes. According to the Islamic calendar, the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated on the first day of the 10th Shawwal after Ramadan. When Eid is celebrated, it is determined by the vision of the moon.
How It Is Celebrated?
On the day of Eid-ul-Fitr, people from the Muslim community make sweet dishes in homes, especially the Meethi Seviyan, called Shur-Qorma. Together, they remove all the complaints. This festival of Islam gives a message of brotherhood, but this defeat is also important for social distance because of the Corona epidemic. That is why this time, people will not meet more and celebrate Eid in their homes. On this day, people wake up early in the morning and wear new clothes and pray for Eid prayers. The first prayer to be read on this day is called Salat Al-Fajr. Before Eid, it is a duty to give zakat to every Muslim in the Ramadan. Under this, every human being has to pay two kilos of grain or its price to the poor.
Eid in Lockdown:
Eid is the third-largest festival in the country after Diwali and Holi, with hundreds of crores of purchases, which is totally closed this time. Perhaps this will be the first time that Eid will not always be celebrated across the country. This time, there will be no Eid in the markets, nor will people pray in mosques, go to anyone's house, neither join hands nor hug anyone. This time all people will celebrate Eid in their homes alone or only with their family. Muslim religious leaders have also banned it. They appealed that half of the Eid budget should be spent on the help of unemployed people from lockdown.
History of Eid-ul-Fitr:
According to the date of Islam, Eid al Fitr was started after Jung-e-Badr. In fact, the War was conquered by Muslims, which was led by Muhammad Saheb himself. After the war, Fatah, people expressed their happiness by celebrating Eid.
Importance of Moon:
Followers of the Islam religion observe the special almanac or calendar determined by the moon's presence and observation. After 29-30 days of Ramadan, the moon of Eid is visible. The month of Ramadan also begins with the moon, and the end is also from the moon.
Thank Allah on the Day of Eid:
On the occasion of Eid ul Fitr, people thank God because Allah gives them the power to stay on fast throughout the month. Some believe that donating in the holy month of Ramadan doubles its fruitage. People donate some money to the poor and the needy.
