RAMZAN EID RECIPE
Muslims all over the world celebrate Ramzan Id
also called Id-Ul-Fitr with great jubilation on the first day of the
Islamic month Shawwal. This day marks the end of Ramadan, the 9th month
of the Islamic calendar, in which the Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet
Mohammed. Since the Islamic calendar is based on the moon, the month of
Ramzan falls at different times each year. Muslims spend the whole
month of Ramadan in fasting and penance. No food or drink is taken from
sunrise to sunset on each day of the month. The completion of the
month-long fast is determined by the appearance of the new moon, and is
celebrated with enthusiasm as Id-Ul-Fitr, which means 'the fast is
over'. In India, this Id is also called Mithi Id. The
month-long fast culminating in this Id spreads a feeling of brotherhood.
Muslims wear new clothes on this day, exchange gifts, participate in
great fairs and watch stunning fireworks displays.
