Essay On Eid
India is perhaps the only nation where people of different castes and religions stay together in harmony. Eid is the festival of Muslims. It is celebrated twice a year. One is known as Ramzan Eid and another is known as Bakari Eid. Ramzan Eid is celebrated in the memory of Prophet Mohammad Paigembar, Founder of the Muslim religion. He was born in Mecca in 570 B.C. The holy book of Muslims is called as ‘Quran’. It explains the teachings of the
Prophet. Muslims fast during the month of Ramzan. This is known as Roza Iftar. Muslims spend these thirty days in devotion. They perform Namaz five times a day. Some also go on a pilgrimage to Mecca. The last day of Ramzan is called Ramzan Eid. The Muslims go to mosques or Idgahs to offer prayers. After prayers, they wish good luck to each other by saying, Eid Mubarak. The stalls in the fairs outside the mosques are full of sweets, toys, and other entertainment. People visit their friends and relatives. They greet each other with love and affection. Our Prime Minister and the President also convey their best wishes to the entire Muslim community.
Bakari Eid is celebrated in memory of Hazrat Ismail’s sacrifice. It falls in the last month of the Islamic calendar. This day is also celebrated by offering prayers followed by sacrificing a goat. The meat is distributed among friends and relatives. A very important aspect of Eid is charity. Both these days are the occasions of rejoicing, happiness, and vigor. Muslims begin their new business or important work on this holy day. The festival tells us to follow the guidelines of the Prophet.
