Eid is an arabic word which means a day which returns often.
This festival is celebrated at the end of the month of fasting that is why it is also called the festival of breaking of the fast. Fasting in the month of Ramadhan is one of the five pillars of islam.
Now a days having a feast and festival have become an integral part of human life in almost every society. For Muslims – all religious festivals have their own special significance. Infact at the end of every different mode of worship, islam has instituted a celebtation.
Eid reunions are moments of joy and happieness for those who have fasted in the month of Ramadhan. Islam grafts the remembrance of Allah with every activity.
Fasting is regarded as a physcial, moral and spiritual discipline for the purpose of promoting righteousness (Taqwa)
Allah almighty also states to offer the following prayers and it is a sign of people who offer this prayer that,
‘our lord, grant us of our spouses and children, the delight of our eyes and make each of us leader of the righteous (Holy Quran: Al- Furqan Ch 25: verse 75)
Thus this prayer will maintain us upon righteousness (Taqwa) and whilst protecting your progeny from the evils of the world, will help them to maintain Taqwa.
