Eid-al-Fitr, also known as Hari Raya in Southeast Asian countries, marks the end of Ramadan or the month-long fasting for Muslims everywhere in the world. This year, Ramadan started on or around June 7.
Ramadan involves abstinence from eating, drinking, smoking and participation in any sexual activity, though this does not mean total prevention of nourishment. According to the Independent, believers wake up at around 4 a.m. to eat and drink, preparing themselves for the day ahead. Fasting kicks off from sunrise to sunset.
As Muslims experience hunger and thirst during a Ramadan day, they are reminded of the poor’s suffering. The period also serves as an opportunity for believers to exercise self-control, as well as a strengthened connection with Allah. Prayers are mainstays for the entire occasion.
Eid-al-Fitr is the “festival of breaking the fast,” Al Jazeera noted, and it begins with special prayers in mosques and open spaces. From this point, they are free to attend lavish feasts and exchange gifts. The celebration is also the time to self-reflect, forgive and thank Allah for blessings.
Happy Eid-al-Fitr!
