Muslims all around the world are getting ready for the final day of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and the celebration of Eid-Ul-Fitr. The celebration, also known as Meethi Eid or Eid al-Fitr, signals the completion of the holy month of Ramadan when Muslims observe Roza (fasting) from dawn till dark for one month while partaking in religious activities and introspection. One of the biggest holidays in the Islamic calendar is Eid-Ul-Fitr, which is an auspicious day. Muslims conclude their Roza on this day, offer praise to Allah for providing them with health and strength during Ramadan, don new garments, cook special foods, give to the needy, and spend time with their loved ones.

Eid-Ul-Fitr is anticipated to be observed this year from April 21 (Friday) to April 23 (Sunday). The precise date can change depending on the moon's sighting.
