Eid Mubarak

August 22, 2012

Eid in Wormholt ParkSunday 19 August 2012 was a gloriously sunny morning and by 8.30am the park was filling up with local Muslims to hold morning prayers to celebrate the end of Ramadhan.

Eid is an Arabic word meaning “festivity”, while Fiṭr means “breaking the fast”. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan.

Eid Mubarak literally translated means ‘(Have a) blessed Celebration’. If someone says Eid Mubarak to you it is customary to reply back with Eid Mubarak as well.
