Ramadan is regarded as the holiest month of the year for Muslims as it was the month in which the Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) on the night of Laylat Al Qadr, one of the last ten nights of Ramadan.
Ramadan is basically the annual fast that millions of Muslims across the world take part in. This means they don’t eat or drink between sunrise and sunset, which is important during Ramadan as it allows them to devote themselves further to their faith, ultimately becoming closer to Allah, or God. Ramadan is always celebrated during the 9th month of the Islamic Calendar during which Muslims take time to spend time with their loved ones, do charity work and reflect spiritually.

Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha are the main two annual Islamic celebrations. Eid al-Fitr translates as the ‘festival of breaking the fast’ and happens immediately after Ramadan and it is the time during which the families gather together to enjoy feasts with festivity. Customarily, family and friends dress up in new Eid clothes and visit each other’s houses bearing gifts. Many families will also visit the poor and needy in their own communities to make sure they have enough food and water to celebrate themselves. Charity is known as zakat, one of the five pillars of Islam, and is particularly significant during Ramadan and the Eids.
Eid al-Adha is the second largest celebration related to Ramadan and it translates to ‘festive of sacrifice’. This name is given to this day because on this day, animals like sheep and goats are slaughtered. This day takes place 70 days after the end of Ramadan and it marks the end of Hajj. The meat from the animals is shared; one third is kept by the family, one third is given to friends and relatives and the remaining amount id given to less fortunate and poorer families.
Both Eids are national public holidays that typically last three days.
