Eid is the biggest festival of the Muslims. It is celebrated all across the world and it marks that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. The holy day celebrates the conclusion of the 29-30 days of fasting during the month of Ramadan. Muslims believe that they are commanded by Allah, as mentioned in the Quran, to continue their fast until the last day of Ramadan and pay the Zakat and Fitra before offering the Eid prayers.
