The Islamic month of fasting, Ramadan, ends with the festival of Eid al Fitr. A celebratory meal breaks the fast and at this time charity and good deeds have special significance. Eid is also a time of forgiveness and making amends.
Ramadan is the most auspicious month on the Islamic calendar, being the month in which the first verses of the Qur’an were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. During Ramadan Muslims around the world fast from sunrise to sunset.
