Library Leisure: Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr

Eid Mubarak (May 12-13, 2021)

From Wikipedia:  Eid al-Fitr (/d əl ˈfɪtər/ eed əl FIT-ər; Arabic: عيد الفطرʻĪd al-Fiṭr, IPA: [ʕiːd al fitˤr]),[3] also called the "Festival of Breaking the Fast" or Lesser Eid, or simply Eid,[4] is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan.[5] The date for the start of any lunar Hijri month varies based on when the new moon is sighted by local religious authorities, so the day of celebration varies by locality. The holiday is known under various other names in different languages and countries around the world.

Ramadan Mubarak

From Wikipedia: "Ramadan (Arabic: رَمَضَان‎, romanized: Ramaḍān [ra.ma.dˤaːn]),[a] also spelled Ramazan, Ramzan, Ramadhan or Ramathan, is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar,[9] observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (sawm), prayer, reflection and community.[10] A commemoration of Muhammad's first revelation,[11] the annual observance of Ramadan is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam[12] and lasts twenty-nine to thirty days, from one sighting of the crescent moon to the next.[13][14]"
