Epic Fireworks for Eid Celebrations

Eid is almost upon us and what better way to celebrate than with a friends and family fireworks display.

Epic Fireworks have been supplying fireworks for Eid celebrations for many years. Whether you are planning a large display for many hundreds of guests, or a small private party for just your nearest and dearest, Epic Fireworks have got just what you need.

Eid Ul-Fitr is the festival that marks the end of Ramadam, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Eid is an Arabic word meaning festivity, while Fitr literally means charity. The holiday of Eid celebrates the end of the fasting time.

There is a Khutbah (speech) in which the Imam gives advice to the Muslim community and usually, Muslims are encouraged to end any past animosities they may have. He then goes on to the khutbah and then the prayer itself.

When the local imam declares Eid ul-Fitr everyone greets and hugs each other. As Eid ul-Fitr is not a recognised public holiday in the United Kingdom, Muslims are obliged to attend the morning prayer. In a large ethnically Muslim area, normally schools and local businesses give exemptions to the Muslim community to take three days off.

In the rest of the UK, it is not recognised as it is not on a fixed date as it is decided by the sighting of the moon on the night before.

During the morning, men usually wear Thobe, Jubba, Sharwani or Punjabi, and women usually wear shalwar kameez. Men head to the mosque for the Eid prayers, after which people greet each other. After this many will go to a local cemetery to pay respect and to remember the deceased. When they return home they will greet the family and friend and also other Muslims and visit relatives across the city.
