Significance of Ramzan Id
Ramzan Id or Id Ul Fitr is one of the important occasions for Muslims. It marks the completion of the holy Ramzan month through which Muslims observe fasting. Ramzan is the ninth month in Muslim calendar and is termed as the holy month. They carry on fast during daytime throughout the month and eat and drink even water only after sunset. They believe that fasting will bring them closer to Allah and also help them get rid of their sins of past. The concept of fasting is not to make people starve but to help people take themselves to a level of spiritualism that this helps them get fully devoted to God and feel for those who get very little to eat daily. The day signifies the breaking of the fast and is decided only after seeing the crescent moon. People believe in distribution of charity on this day. The charity can be either cash or even foodstuff or clothes or in any form the donor prefers. On this day, they wear new clothes, prepare new dishes and visit mosque for prayers. It is believed that the holy book of Quran was written during this month and so people try to purify their soul with their thoughts and deeds. The month of Ramzan is considered as a gift from God and is related to mercy and forgiveness.
Festivals are great opportunities for people to mix with each other and give life a different meaning. This is the reason why even Hindus participate in the rejoicing in most parts of the world and show their love and appreciation towards the festival and feelings of their Muslim friends. Each year this much awaited festival is celebrated with eagerness and enthusiasm all over the world.
