Islam one of the major religions in the world. It was founded in Arabia by the Prophet Muhammad in the 7th century AD.
‘Islam’ is an Arabic word which means surrender. A Muslim is defined as a person who accepts and submits to the will of Allah.
Allah is regarded as the only God, the creator, maintainer and restorer of the world.
The holy book, the Qur’an, reveals the will of Allah, which is to be obeyed by all human beings.

Eid-ul-Fitr

It is one of the many Muslim festivals celebrated around the world.
The event takes place on the last day of Ramadan (Ramadan), the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.
People observe a fast for the entire month of Ramadan, which begins in the morning and ends in the evening. Fasting is prescribed by Muslim law, often referred to as Shariat.
The first day of the month of Shawwal and the month of Ramadan after the appearance of the moon are designated as the dates of the Eid-ul-Fitr festival.

Ramadan

Ramadan is the Muslim holy month of fasting observed by Muslims around the world.
Eid-ul-Fitr is a Muslim festival that occurs at the end of the month of Ramadan.
Although donations are made to the poor in the month of Ramadan, on the day of Eid, shortly before the prayer, this tradition is strengthened and alms called ‘Fitr’ are given, giving the festival the name Eid-ul-Fitr.
Muslims believe that according to the Qur’an, Allah gives ‘zakat’ and ‘fitr’ to his followers before offering the Eid prayer of praise to Allah.

Id-ul-Zuha or Eid-ul-Azha

Bakrid, or Eid, which involves the sacrifice of a goat or goat, is another name for it. It is celebrated on the tenth day of Dhu-al-Hijjah, the twelfth month of the Islamic calendar.
It commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s unwavering loyalty to Allah, who was tested when God ordered him to sacrifice his son.
Ibrahim is believed to have voluntarily agreed to behead his son, but God was kind and accepted the sacrifice of a goat’s head.
As a result, on the day of Eid-ul-Azha a Rama’s head was slaughtered.

Milad-Un-Nabi
This festival, also known as Barh-Wafat, is celebrated as the birth anniversary of the Prophet Muhammad.
The Prophet was born on the twelfth day of Rabi-al-Awwal, the third month of the Muslim calendar according to the Quran. Milad-un-Nabi or Maulid-un-Nabi is the date of his birth.
It is also the day the Prophet is said to have left the planet, so celebrations are relatively less important on this day.
This day comes under the category of national holiday. It is celebrated with pomp and devotion.

The tenth day of the month of Muharram is known as Yam-al-Ashura, and is celebrated as a day of mourning by Shia Muslims around the world.
