Eid, popularly known as Eid-ul-Fitr, is a festival observed by the Muslim community to celebrate the conclusion of the month of fasting.

Muslims believe that during the month of Ramadan, Allah revealed the first verses of the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam. Around 610 A.D., a caravan trader named Muhammad took to wandering the desert near Mecca (in today’s Saudi Arabia) while thinking about his faith. One night a voice called to him from the night sky. It was the angel Gabriel, who told Muhammad he had been chosen to receive the word of Allah. In the days that followed, Muhammad found himself speaking the verses that would be transcribed as the Qur’an.

During the festival, Muslims exchange gifts, greeting their neighbors as a mark of solidarity and brotherhood. According to the Islamic tradition, there are two festivals observed by Muslims every year – Eid-ul-Fitr just after Ramadan and Eid-ul-Zuha in the month of Haj.
