  • Description

    THROUGHOUT THE WORLD FOLLOWERS OF THE MOHOMMEDAN FAITH HAVE BEEN CELEBRATING THE FEAST OF EID-UL FITR - THE THREE DAYS MARKING THE END OF THE THIRTY DAY FAST OF RAMADAN.

    EID, AS IT IS KNOWN TO MOSLEMS, BEGINS ON JANUARY 22. IT IS MARKED BY FEASTING AND A SPENDING SPREE SIMILAR TO THAT ENJOYED BY FOLLOWERS OF CHRISTIANITY AT CHRISTMAS.

    THERE ARE AN ESTIMATED 600-MILLION ADHERENTS OF THE ISLAMIC FAITH THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

    EID-UL FITR IS THE OCCASION WHEN MOSLEMS AFFIRM THE MIGHT OF ALLAH WHICH THEIR FAITH TELLS THEM HAS GIVEN THEM THE STRENGTH TO ENDURE THE FAST OF RAMADAN.

    THE FESTIVAL BEGINS WITH A SPECIAL PRAYER. THEN THE BRIGHTEST CLOTHES IN THE WARDROBE ARE DONNED, TASTY DISHES ARE PREPARED AND PEOPLE DEMONSTRATE FEELINGS OF GOODWILL TO ALL THEIR NEIGHBOURS.

    THERE ARE, HOWEVER, STILL A GREAT MANY MOSLEMS WHO PREFER TO MARK EDI-UL FITR AS A TIME OF SOLEMN PRAYER AND THANKSGIVING WITH A DEGREE OF SIMPLICITY AND AUSTERITY.
