TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - He expressed hope that there would be more peace, calm and moderation in the Islamic world through following holy Quran teachings, the God’s help and solidarity among Muslims.
Eid al-Fitr "feast of breaking of the fast" is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.
The religious Eid is the first and only day in the month of Shawwal during which Muslims are not permitted to fast. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan.
The day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month of Shawwal. The date for the start of any lunar Hijri month varies based on the observation of new moon by local religious authorities, so the exact day of celebration varies by locality.
