Eid al Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar. Ramadan recognizes Muhammad’s divine revelation from Allah, as recorded in the Qur’an. During this period, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset, and time is focused on prayer, charity and self-reflection. On Eid al Fitr, Muslims celebrate the end of fasting, and give thanks to Allah for giving them the strength to practice self-control during Ramadan. This is also a time for forgiveness and helping others.
Recognizing the Festival/Holiday: Avoid scheduling important academic deadlines, events and activities on these dates (work holiday). Dates are determined by the lunar calendar. Eid al Fitr is a three day celebration.
