The conclusion of the holy month of Ramadan culminates in the celebration of Eid al-Fitr, which is one of the main Muslim holidays.
Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan – the ninth month on the Islamic calendar – when Muslims refrain from dawn to dusk from eating, drinking, smoking, and indulging in anything that is in excess or ill-natured.
Muslims believe Ramadan to be an auspicious month for the revelations of God to humankind, given the belief that it was in Ramadan when the first verses of the Holy Qur’an were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
