2020. However, exact date is subject to sighting of moon of Shawwal, 1441,

Eid ul Fitr, known as'ol is Arabic and Asian counties, is a unique festival for
all Muslims around the world. Eid al-Fitr marks the end of holy month of Ramadan.
Eld al Fitr is Allahs reward for believers who have fasted during the holy month of
Ramadan. This is also believers thanking Allah for giving them the chance and the
strength to carry out His commands during the blessed month of Ramadan.
Traditionally, Eid al Fitr is celebrated for three days almost in all Muslim countries.

Both Eid uil Fitr and Eid Al-Adha have great significance in Islam as the same is
evident from the following Hadith:

Narrated that Anas bin Malik (R.A), who said:

"Allah has given you better than those feasts (festivals of non-
believers): the 'Eid-ul-Adha' and 'Eid-ul-Fitr

(An-Nasal: 1556)

Remember one thing that Fasting on Eid days i-e Eid uk-Fitr and Eid a-Adha are

forbidoen as the same is ewdent trom the following Hadith
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (RA.) that Prophet (S.A W) said
"No fasting is permissible on the two days of Eid-u-Fitr and Eld-ul

(Sahih Bukhari: 1995)


Since it is a religious festival, therefore, Muslims all over the world celebrate
this event with much fervor and each country's celebrations vary as there is an
influence of their traditions. Muslims all over the world celebrate the festival of
Eid al Fitr by starting the day with the Eid ul fitr 2020 prayer. After offering prayer, Muslim
greet each other with the customary Eid greetings by saying Eid Mubarak.
Everyone gets new clothes made for the special occasion because every single
person wants to look his/her best. The day is spent with friends and family as
they get together indulging in eating and handing out gifts.

Eid-ul-Fitr is a period of happiness and enjoyment; and this is also evident fram
the following Hadith:

It was narrated by Aisha (RA.Lwho reported that Prophet (S.A.W.) said to Abu
Bakr (R.A.) (On the day of Eid when Abu Bakr (R.A.) saw two girls were singing

the stories about the Day of Buath in Madinah)

".0 Abu Bakr! Every people have their Eid and this is our Eid."
(Sahih Bukhari: 952)

In another narration, it is said that Allah's Messenger (S.A.W.) said to Abu Bakr

"Let them be 0 Abu Bakr, for these are day of Eid ul fitr.


The scholars differed conceming the ruling on Eid prayers. However, all Muslim
should attend prayers of both Eids as most scholars, on the basis of stron9
evidences, is of opinion that it is Wajib (obligation). one ot the purpose behind
Eid Prayer is to provide opportunities to a greater number of Muslims to attend
larger congregations in an atmosphere of religious piety. Apart from prayer, the
Eid sermon (after Eid ul fitr Prayer) has also been made an integral part of this
gathering and the prayer.

It is important and compulsive for a Muslim to pay Zakat-ul-Fitr before offering

of Eid ul fitr Prayer. (Sahih Bukhari: 1511)

The time for Eid ul fitr Prayer begins from the time the sun is three meters above the

horizon until the sun reaches its meridian. However, it is better to offer the

prayer in the early hours after the sunrise. (Abu Dawud: 1135)
Eid Prayer is performed without any "Iqmah' or 'Athan'. ISahih Muslim: 885 (b)
Eid prayer consists of two Rak'at (Two Unit Prayer) during which Tabkeer (Allah-

uAkbar) is pronounce seven times. (Abu Dawud: 1149)
Rest of the Eid prayer is same as other prayer offered daily
After completing the prayer, it is Sunnah (some scholars say that it is Wajib) to

listen the Sermon (Khutbah) after Eid ul fitr Prayer. So one should stay for Imam's

sermon to end after completing the Eid Prayer.

After listening the sermon, Muslims congratulate each other with greetings
such as Eid Ul Fitr Mubarak, Happy Eid ul fitr 2020, and Jln ae etc. However, the most common
Eid Greeting Muslims like to wish their friends and fellow Muslims is 'Eid ul fitr


Sunnah of Eid ul fitr 2020 Prayer
A person should follow the teachings of the Messenger of Allah (SA.W.) for
every aspect of life and same is also apply for Eid prayer. Following are some
Sunnah of Prophet (S A.W.) which every Muslim should follow

1- Take a bath or perform ablution before going for prayer.
2- Use the tooth-brush (Miswaak).
3-You should wear your best clothes on this day.
4-Apply perfume.

5-Eat odd number of dates before leaving for prayer of Eid A-Fitr. (Sahih
Bukhari: 953)

6-Make sure that you have paid Zakat ul fitr. 

7-Say following Takbeerat while going and returning from Eid ul fitr Prayer

Alaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, Alahu akbar laa ilaaha ill-Alaah, wa Alaahu akbar, Allaah akbar,
wa Lillaah ikhamd

(Allah is Most Great, Allaah is most Great, Allah is most Great there is no god
but Allah, Allaah is Most great, Allaah is most great, and to Allaah be praise)

(Irwa Al Ghalil: 3/125)

8-Listening to Sermon (Khutbah) after offering Eid ul fitr 2020 Prayer. (An-Nasai: 1517)

9-Use different ways while going to mosque and returning after offering Eid
Prayer. (Sahih Bukhari: 986)


As narrated by ibn Umar (R.A) that:

Allah's Messenger (S.A.W.) made it incumbent (Wajib) on all the
slave or free Muslims, male or female. 

(Sahih Bukhari: 1504)

According to above mentioned Hadith, Zakat Al-Fitr or Sadaqat-ul-Fitr (or
fitrah/fitrana) is Wajib upon every Muslim including slave, freeman, male,
female, young, new-bom and old. Compulsion of Zakat ul-Fitr on a Muslim is
same as the Nisab of normal Zakat (Nisab Is the exemption limit for the
payment of Zakat).

Calculate the Payable Zakat through Zakat Calculator

The amount of Sadaqa Al-Fitr to be given by each person is an amount
minimum or equivalent to one Sa' of grain / barley / date. Sa' is an ancient
measure of volume and most common understanding is that one Sa is
equivalent to approx. 2.25-2.5 KGs. However, Muslims scholars all around the
world usually announce the amount of Zakat A-Fitr to be paid during Ramadan.

As in normal Zakat, Zakat Al-Fitr is distributed among poor and needy Muslim.
It is preferable to give Sadaqat-ul-Fitr firstly to needy elatives, thereafter to
needy neighbors and then to other needy Muslims.

Zakat A-Fitr should be paid before the Eid Prayer

conclusion : |
enjoy this festival as you can celebrate the entire day with your friends and
family members and eating but don't forget your under-privileged fellow Muslim
brother and sisters who don't have the means to celebrate this blessed festival.
