Eid al-Fitr, also known as the ‘Festival of Breaking the Fast’, is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims in Manchester and right across the world.
Taking place over just one day, the festival marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting. For 2021 Eid al-Fitr is due to start on 12 May and end on 13 May.
The festival of Eid holds great importance in Islam. It marks a time when families, friends and communities join together in celebration. Beautiful clothes, the exchange of gifts and delicious feasts are all important elements of the festival.
The festival is also a time of reflection and forgiveness, and a chance to spend time with cherished family members.
