Most Muslims attend Eid prayers in the morning and once the local Imam declares Eid ul-Fitr everyone greets each other. Following prayers it is customary to visit relatives, friends and acquaintances. The traditional greeting exchanged at Eid ul Fitr is Eid Muburak.
Lasting for three days Eid ul-Fitr is not only a celebration of the end of fasting, but also a thanksgiving to Allah for the strength given through the last month to help practise self control. Homes are decorated for the celebration, everyone wears their best clothes and a special daytime celebratory meal is eaten – the first daytime meal in a month.
The start date is denoted by the new moon at the end of Ramadan. Many Muslims insist on sight of the new moon before declaring the start of the Eid ul Fitr celebrations so the timing may differ from country to country but usually only by a day.
