History

According to the legends, Prophet Mohammad while meditating was visited by the messenger of God, Gabriel. It was Gabriel who taught Mohammad the holy verses of sacred Quran - which contains a set of code of conduct that Allah wants His people to follow on the earth.

To express his gratitude to Allah, Mohammad asked all the Muslims to spend the month of Ramadan with strict discipline and fasting. The first day of the following month is observed as Eid-ul-Fitr, the fast breaking ceremony aiming to promote, contemplation of soul, brotherhood, love and bringing oneself back to normal chores of everyday life.

The word 'Eid' and 'Fitr' have Arabic origins meaning 'festivity' and 'to break fast' respectively.
