Eid-Ul-Fitr is a very important festival in the Islamic calendar and was started by the Prophet Muhammad himself. It is also known as ‘The Feast of Breaking the Fast’ and is celebrated by Muslims worldwide to mark the end of Ramadan. Eid-Ul-Fitr takes place on the first day of the tenth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, and Muslims are not permitted to fast on that day.
Muslims are not only celebrating the end of fasting, but also thanking Allah for the Qur’an, which was first revealed towards the end of Ramadan, and for the strength Allah has given them to exercise self-control throughout the previous month of fasting. If necessary, they will ask Allah for forgiveness if they failed to keep the fast at any point.
Happy Eid-Ul-Fitr: Dr. Yogesh Sharma
Happy Happy Eid-Ul-Fitr,
To my dear Muslim brothers and sisters.
Pray to Almighty God to shower,
Peace on my rampaging brothers.
To clear darkness out of the fanatic minds,
Make them sweet and throw the,
Satan of Jihad and Fidayeen out of them.
It gave so much pain to them,
Stop slaughtering of lives,
Bring this madness to an end.
Remembering the blessings of life;
Soften their killing hearts,
Clearing bitterness and strife.
Stir the feeling of love and peace, giving hope.
Flame enthusiasm, spread cheer,
Grow generosity and wipe out terror.
Dispel darkness by lighting decorations,
Enjoy life with warm and friendly celebrations.
See bleeding humanity worldwide,
Give them balm of love and peace.
Forget hate, revenge and blood;
Sneaking from every mind,
Ease chains of arrogance, ghastly ride;
Cruel bones, oppressed in sick cells.
Forget religion, sect, and pray for man;
So fast spread love and humanity.
Shun the faith of slaughtering and hate,
Restore joy, happiness and love on Eid night.
O God! O Sky! O Moon! O Stars! O Land!
Love affection, respect spread all around.
