Eid al-Fitr or (Eid 2019) — The biggest festivals of the Muslim community — is most likely to be celebrated on 5 June 2019 in India. Like we people get paid our salary at the end of the month or week, Muslims also get Eid as the gift from Almighty. Yes, the night of Eid al-Fitr is considered as the night of rewards and Almighty has said that in the holy book Quran, he will accept the prayer of those who observed fast during the fasting month, Ramadan 2019.
The day of Eid falls on the 10th Islamic month Shawwal. Notably, there are few days in Islam, when Muslims are not permitted to fast including the day of Eid. The celebration of Eid varies by locality. On the occasion of Eid, Muslims offer two rakats (units) and it is mostly performed in the open ground instead of local mosques.

What Does Eid-al-Fitr Mean?
Eid al-Fitr is an Arabic word, whose meaning in English is “Festival of Breaking the Fast”. The festival of Eid holds great importance in Islam and is a time for loved ones and communities to come together.
Muslims celebrate Eid to mark the conclusion of the blessed month of Ramadan, which commemorates the moment when the Holy Quran was first revealed to Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). After the month of sacrifice and reflection, Eid is a time to rejoice with family and friends and exchange gifts with loved ones.
‘The month of Ramadan is that in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So, whoever sights the new moon of the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and wants for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that to which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.’ – Quran 2:185
Eid al-Fitr Namaz
Unlike general Namaz, the namaz of Eid is different. It has six additional Takbirs (when Muslims raise their hands to the ears while saying, Allahu Akbar- God is the greatest). In common Namaz Muslim only raise their hands once. In Namaz-e-Eid, they raise their hands three times at the beginning of the first rakat and three times before they go to ruku and complete the rest of the steps like a common prayer.
The exact date of Eid al-Fitr depends on the moon of Shawwal, as it can not be said that Eid will be celebrated on this and this date. The celebration always varies as per the locality as the new moon is sighted at different times by local religious authorities.
The Eid al-Fitr 2019 is most likely to be celebrated on June 5 but this is tentative as it depends on when the new moon is sighted. In order to end controversy related to the moon, Pakistan has launched moon sighting website.
Muslims are prescribed to continue to their fast until the moon of Shawwal is not sighted. They are also commanded to pay Fitra (charity) before offering the Eid prayer.
It was originated by none other than Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). According to reports, it was started in Medina when Muhammed (PBHU) migrated from the holy city Mecca to Medina. When Prophet arrived in Medina, he found that the people celebrating two specific days in which they used to entertain themselves with recreation and merriment. The Messanger of God asked them about the nature of these festivities at which they replied that these days were occasions of fun and recreation.
Responding to their answers, the Prophet remarked that the Almighty has fixed two days [of festivity] instead of these for you which are better than this, one is Eid al-Fitr and another is Eid al-Adha.
The day of Eid begins once the moon of Shawwal is sighted. If the moon is not seen on the 29th of Ramadan then Muslims have to complete the 30th Roza to mark the ending of the fasting month.
As an obligatory act of charity, Muslims are entitled to pay some amount of money to poor and underprivilaged people before they perform Namaz-e-Eid. While going for Namaz-e-Eid or coming back to home, Muslims praise the Almighty in loud voice saying: Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar. Lā ilāha illà l-Lāh wal-Lāhu akbar, Allahu akbar walil-Lāhi l-ḥamd.
After performing Namaz-e-Eid, Muslims visit relatives and give presents, money or candy to children. Cards can also be sent, often featuring the words “Eid Mubarak”.
