Best Answer

Answer 1

Celebrating eid ul fitr is a way of expressing being happy after the completion of one of the five pillars of Islam i.e. fasting in the month of Ramadan as celebrating of eid al-adha which comes after the completion of pilgrimage ; so the two eids are for thanking Allah (God) for these blessings.

Answer 2

It is celebrated for three reasons, from my point of understanding:

  • thanking God for guiding us and supporting us in completing fasting the month of Ramadan.
  • gathering in the mosque or open area early in morning to pray and to ask God forgiveness and to congratulate each other.
  • the celebration should be proceeded by paying charity to the poor, called "Zakat ul Fitr"

Additional Details

  • Eid ul-Fitr or Id-ul-Fitr , often abbreviated to Eid, is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Eid is an Arabic word meaning "festivity", while Fiṭr means "to break fast"; and so the holiday symbolizes the breaking of the fasting period. It is celebrated after the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan, on the first day of Shawwal. Eid ul-Fitr is a day long celebration and is sometimes also known as the "Smaller Eid" as compared to the Eid ul-Adha that lasts four days and is called the "Greater Eid" Muslims are commanded by the Qur'an to complete their fast on the last day of Ramadan and then recite the Takbir all throughout the period of Eid
  • Eid Ul-Fitr is a celebratory feast that marks the end of the fasting period of the Islamic month of Ramadan and ushers in the month of Shawwaal. For Muslims, Eid Ul-Fitr not only signals the breaking of the fast, but also signifies the attainment of communication with the divine spirit and religious virtue, characterized by sacrifice, self-discipline and acts of charity
  • Eid -ul-Fitr is one of the important festivals of Muslims. After Ramadan, the month of fasting Muslims celebrate Eid-Ul-Fitr.Eid-ul-fitr is celebrated on the first day of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic calendar, which Muslims follow. The sighting of the new crescent moon marks the beginning of the month.
