Eid Festival

Do you love festivals? Do you agree with the cultural importance of the country?  If yes then here is some information about the famous festival Eid, celebrated by muslims all over Nepal and the whole world. Eid is a celebration in which people exchange happiness. This festival is celebrated with enthusiasm and passion by Muslims all over the world. This event happens in the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, Hijri, and is observed on the 70th day of Holy Ramadan. In Nepal, there are a large number of Muslims. We’d like to talk about Id, or id-ul-Fitr, one of our most important festivals. It is, in fact, the Muslim community’s most important celebration. It is also known as New Year’s Day. It is observed after the conclusion of Ramadan, the Islamic calendar’s holy month. It can occur throughout the month of July.


The term ‘EID’ is derived from the word ‘wd,’ which means festival, and which derives from the word ‘uzhaiyya,’ which means ‘sacrifice.’ According to the Hijri or Hijarat period, it is a new Muslim feast. During the month of Ramadan, Muslims observe a month-long fast known as Roza. They don’t eat or drink anything throughout the daylight. After the sun sets, the entire family gathers to worship and then they eat food of their choice. They think that by doing so, they will become purified and disciplined.

Eid-al-Fitr is the name given to the last and the final day of Ramadan. They congratulate one another, embrace, and greet one another. ‘Eid Mubarak,’ which signifies a joyful New Year, is the greeting. They put on new clothing, indulge in a wide range of delicacies, and pay visits to their friends and family. They visit the mosque and recite the Namaz. They also pay zakat, or charity, to the poor, crippled, and destitute. Muslims revere Mecca and Medina as sacred places.Muslims maintain a month-long fast throughout this month. After the sunrise and before the dusk, they don’t eat or drink anything. After the twilight, they only eat one meal. Roza is the name of the fast. As a result, Id is also known as the Feast of Breaking the Fast, which signifies the conclusion of Ramjan.


People visit a mosque on Eid to read the Namaz and pray to Allah, the God of peace and prosperity. They greet each other with “Eid Mubarak” and “Happy Eid.” The Eid festival is a time for feasting and celebrations. The centerpiece of the event is family get-togethers and feasts.On this day, people pay charity to the underprivileged known as Zakat. This event offers delectable foods like as Segways. It is now time to put all past disagreements and grudges behind us. This celebration brings Muslims from all around the world together.


Every Muslim understands the importance of becoming closer to God and seeking forgiveness. They want him to be kind to them and constantly lead them in the right direction. This is the primary reason why virtually every Muslim will rise early in the morning to attend prayers at the mosque. They pray to Allah Almighty for eternal love, peace, and guidance.They pray to Allah for forgiveness, but they also come to their other for forgiveness. Muslims seek forgiveness from one other for whatever bad deeds they may have committed knowingly or unknowingly.The meaning and significance of this particular festival are completely spiritual, which is why Eid is so important. The main point of this celebration is to praise Allah Almighty for his favors and to enjoy it. Not only that, but this event also serves as a reminder to be united and never forget those who are less fortunate.The truth is that this unique day has no historical importance, yet Muslims all around the world celebrate it as a spiritual occasion.


Nepalese people hold their culture and traditions close to their hearts. The ancient religious traditions are still practiced here, alongside the new trends that are emerging. We celebrate festivals primarily because the overwhelming majority of them are religiously themed, and so we come to honor our religions. Festivals, on the other hand, provide a sense of enjoyment, relaxation, and the opportunity to interact with family members that we rarely see. Each group values and appreciates the culture of the others. The major reason for celebrating the festivals is for harmony and harmonious lifestyle in Nepal. Festivals like Eid makes our country diverse and rich in so many ways.
