Muslims celebrate two main festivals every year, Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Azha.



Muslims fast for the whole month of Ramadan and then celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on the first, 2nd, and 3rd of shawal.

Eid-ul-Azha is celebrated on the 10th, 11th and 12th of Zil-hajj.

Muslims remember the sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim علیه السلام on his son Hazrat Ismail علیه السلامon this day.



Hazrat Ibrahim علیه السلام was ready to sacrifice his son on the order of Allah, but in the end Allah saved him.

Instead, Hazrat Ibrahim علیه السلام was ordered to sacrifice an animal.

Muslims sacrifice animals on Eid-ul-Azha in remembrance this, and share the meat with their relatives and poor people.

Muslims offer special Eid prayers on the morning of both Eids to thank Allah for all his blessings.


However, before the Eid-ul-Fitr prayers, Muslims also give (fitra) charity to the poor and needy, so that they may be able to enjoy eid as well.

All those who are able to, wear new clothes, and delicious food and sweets on both Eids.

Everyone visits relatives and friends.


Elders give money (Eidee) and gifts to children. When you are happy you must not forget those who are poor, needy and sick.

You must try to help them be happy too. It is good to give them some clothes and food as well.
