SHAFAQNA -Â Millions of Muslims worldwide will break a monthlong fast this weekend with the joyous holiday of Eid al-Fitr, and there will be no shortage of food, prayers or gifts. Eid al-Fitr, also known as Eid ul-Fitr or Eid, celebrates the conclusion of the dawn-to-sunset fast during the Islamic holy month Ramadan and the beginning of the Islamic month of Shawwal.
Ramadan ends and Eid al-Fitr begins when the new moon is spotted in the sky. This means the start of the Eid holiday canÂ vary in different parts of the world.
