The festival of Eid al-Fitr, also known as The Feast of Breaking the Fast and The Sugar Feast, will take place this Saturday to mark the end of the month long observation of Ramadan. Ramadan is a period of fasting and reflection which marks the anniversary of the Quran being revealed to the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) and is one of the most important times in the Islamic calendar.
The festivities of Eid Al-Fitr begin at the first sight of the new moon and can last up to three days in some countries. Eid al-Fitr is a time of celebration where many Muslims will pray and decorate their houses with lights and decorations. Special foods are prepared and friends and relatives are invited to share the feast; presents and cards are exchanged and money is given to charity. A number of Eid Festivals will take place including the annual celebration in Trafalgar Square in London.
We have some Eid Mubarak stickers for use with any celebrations, lessons or assemblies you have planned. Each set of stickers contains six designs and 70 stickers in total. We’d love to see any pictures of your Eid celebrations, leave us a comment or post a picture to our Facebook or Twitter pages.
