Eid-ul-Fitr: It is a Muslim festival. Ramzan comes from a translated version of Ramadan, which is derived from the Arabic root ramida or ar-ramad, which means scorching heat or dryness. It is a period of fasting observed from dawn to dusk. Every Muslim, mostly after they turn 12 years, consider it their duty to fast during Ramzan. But some cases of excuses are there during special circumstances like illness, pregnancy, travel, old-age, health issues and so on. Ramzan is the ninth pillar of Islam and is practiced in reverence of Allah. The month consists of 29-30 days depending on the visual sightings of the crescent moon and all the followers follow the timetable of Mecca. They eat before 4 a.m. and post that, they don’t eat or drink anything throughout the day, including water. The meal that they have in the morning is called Sehri. As the day proceeds, they recite namaaz at the mosque (masjid) in the evening after sunset; they open their fast with something natural like fruits, dates (khajur), milk, water– basically anything which isn’t cooked over fire. Dates are popularly eaten to open the Roza for their distinguishing quality of providing instant energy after a day full of fasting. The meal served in the evening is called Suhoor or Iftaar.
