Happy Eid!

Eid Mubarak!

“According to Islamic tradition, Al Fitr Holiday marks the time to give thanks to God for helping the believers to perform their religious duties (fasting and praying) successfully. This holiday is also attributed to the conclusion of the compilation of the Quran, according to some traditions. Additionally , Al Fitr is the holiday of forgiveness, living in peace and togetherness; therefore, it is accustomed to visit friends and relatives and reconcile previous feuds on this holiday.
Charity is given throughout the days of the holiday, the sick are visited at hospitals , children are given gifts and sweets are eaten. The celebrations begin with a festive meal with the extended family on the noon of the first day.
Eid Al-Fitr is one of the two most important religious holidays in Islam. It is called the “little” holiday, whereas Eid Al Adha which is one day longer, is called the “big” holiday”

[…]  “על פי המסורת המוסלמית, עיד אל פיטר נועד לבטא רגשי הוקרה ותודה לאל על שסייע למאמין לקיים את מצוות הצום בהצלחה. אחת המסורות מייחסת לחג את המועד שבו הסתיימה כתיבת הקוראן. בנוסף לכך, עיד אל-פיטר הוא חג של מחילה, שלום, קהילתיות ואחווה. לכן במהלך החג המוסלמים מרבים לבקר את חבריהם וקרוביהם, וזוהי הזדמנות ליישוב מריבות ומחלוקות. במהלך ימי החג נהוג לתת צדקה לעניים, לבקר חולים, להעניק מתנות לילדים ולהרבות באכילת דברי מתיקה. בשעות הצהריים של היום הראשון נהוג לקיים ארוחת חג משפחתית גדולה בבית המשפחה המורחבת. עיד אל-פיטר הוא אחד משני החגים העיקריים באסלאם. הוא מכונה  ”החג הקטן  ” כיוון שהוא קצר ביום אחד מהחג העיקרי האחר – עיד אל-אדחא.  “   http://icciblog.wordpress.com/2013/08/07/happy-eid/ […]
