Eid-al-Fitr 2021 Date In Mumbai, Hyderabad, South India: The holy month of Ramadan (Ramadan 2021) is just about to end. Today is the 29th day of Ramadan, the holiest month of the worship of Allah. If the moon of Shawwal is seen today, then Eid ul Fitr will be celebrated tomorrow (May 13). If the moon is not seen today, Eid will be celebrated on May 14. Unlike the rest of India, Ramadan started a day before in Kerala. Hence, the festival of Eid will be celebrated on 13 May there. Eid Mubarak 2021: What is Fitra? Why do Muslims give Fitra before Eid? Know the difference between Fitra and Zakat!
Actually, according to the Hijri calendar, the month after Ramadan is Shawwal. In such a situation, until the first moon of Shawwal is seen, the month of Ramadan is not considered complete. On seeing the moon of Shawwal, it is believed that the month of Ramadan is Mukmal, due to which Eid is celebrated the next day.
Eid begins in the morning with the first namaz of the day. Also known as Salat al-Fajr. After this, the whole family eats something sweet. Then people wear new clothes and go to offer Eid prayers. After reciting Eid prayers, we congratulate each other on Eid. However, this year too, due to the outbreak of Coronavirus and lockdown in India, people are performing all the rituals of Ramadan by staying in their homes and praying to Allah.
The festival of Eid gives the message of taking everyone along. On Eid, every Muslim, whether rich or poor, read Namaz together and embraces each other. Charity is a key aspect of Eid in Islam. Every Muslim is encouraged to donate something in the form of money, food and clothes. During the Corona period, many Muslim brothers gave generously and helped those suffering from the epidemic.
