Importance and Significance of Eid al-Fitr

As we have mentioned above that Eid falls on the first day of the Islamic month, Shawwal, which is amongst the days when Muslims are not allowed to observe fast. This propitious day is considered as the day of rewards after a month-long fasting. Yes, the Almighty has said in the Quran, go to Eid-Gah and perform two units of Namaz and asks whatever you want. It is similar to us that we people get our salary at the end of the month or week, Almighty has chosen to bestow his worshiper on Eid for the sacrifice they did during the month of Ramadan.

On the occasion of Eid, Muslims performs special two rakat of Namaz-Eid, which is a little different from their general salat. Yes, the namaz has additional six Takbirs (raising of the hands to the ears while saying “Allāhu Akbar” which means “God is the greatest”); three at the beginning of the first Rakat and the remaining three before they go to ruku in the second rakat in the Hanafi school of Sunni Islam..
