Eid-ul-Fitr – Preparation and Celebration


Eid-Mubarak

Previously I published a post on my blog with a link to The Guardian’s website where they showed how people around the world were celebrating the holy month of Ramadan and now they have put up these pictures of Muslims from around the globe preparing for the auspicious festival of Eid-ul-Fitr and then celebrating the day itself.

Even being a religious festival, it is not celebrated the same way by Muslims across the globe (except for the Eid prayers of course).

This time, though I will put in the links at the end of the post but I will also put some pictures in here as well.

But before I do that, I wish everyone of you a very Happy Eid and pray that all remains peaceful.

Here it goes.
