Eid-Ul-Fitr and Fireworks

Fireworks in Riyadh

As Ramadan prepares to come to a close, 1.5 Billion Muslims get ready to celebrate Eid-Ul-Fitr - The word “Fitr” meaning break. This year Eid falls on the 8th of August. Traditionally Eid is observed on the first day of Shawwal, not as a celebration that Ramadan has ended, but to thank Allah for giving followers the strength to endure the fasting and abstinence from “evil habits”.

Certain Muslims are permitted under the religious law to eat and do as they normally would but must either catch up at a later time or feed the poor and needy for the days they were not able to fast; these are usually the sick, elderly or pregnant women. Muslim children are not expected to fast until they reach puberty.

On this day Muslim families would dress in their finest clothes and usually join other Muslims for prayer to recite Namaaz, or have a meal with neighbours or maybe take round dishes of Ma’mul, Baklava or Hareesa, (sweets) and spread Islam’s preaching’s of humanity, brotherhood and love. Attending the popular Eid Fairs is a good way to spread the happiness and love where it is also becoming more popular to put on an Eid firework display. Gifts of clothes are conventionally given to friends families and loved ones the most popular being “Kufi”, round hats with the names of the loved ones embroidered on them.

Already, Muslim communities from Sheffield, Leeds, Bradford, and Manchester to name but just a few, are already stockpiling fireworks ready for the big event.
