Ramadan ends with the festival of Eid al-Fitr

Ramadan ends with the festival of Eid al-Fitr. Literally the "Festival of Breaking the Fast," Eid al-Fitr is one of the two most important Islamic celebrations (the other occurs after the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca). At Eid al-Fitr people dress in their finest clothes, adorn their homes with lights and decorations, give treats to children, and enjoy visits with friends and family. A sense of generosity and gratitude colors these festivities. Although charity and good deeds are always important in Islam, they have special significance at the end of Ramadan.

Eid al-Fitr, also called the "Festival of Breaking the Fast", is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan

Eid al-Fitr, also called the "Festival of Breaking the Fast", is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan. This religious Eid is the first and only day in the month of Shawwal during which Muslims are not permitted to fast. 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.

  • "Ramadan and Id Al-Fitr (revised and updated)" of 2008, by Dianne MacMillan, 48 pgs, hardback, English. A short `book' serving as a brief introduction for pre-teens as to the prayer rituals that Muslims undergo for their religious holidays of Ramadan and Fitr. This hardback may not appeal to Muslims as its World Map uses the name of `Israel' instead of `Palestine' (which isn't used at all). The author is forthright about the Muslim Prophet Muhammad's powers: "He formed an army and his power grew. in the year 630, his army of ten thousand men marched on Mecca." The author BRIEFLY notes what the `Pillars of Islam' are, and BRIEFLY discusses the WHY of Ramadan and Fitr, and why the fasting. There is no discussion of moral values, or what Muslims are taught to `believe' as to what their Allah revealed to them through the Quran. Makes for a easy 7-minute read. Colorful pictures accompany the short text. Basic stuff that can be found on an internet site.

  • If a used car salesman wrote a book called "how to build a rocket" I could easily compare this book to that. Author Dianne M. MacMillan wrote this book without even a little knowledge about history of Islam or the Prophet. I think the objective of the book and the title does not co-relate. If the goal is to misguide kids/people about the religion of Islam, she probably will be succeeded. All the copy, pasting and writing whatever should not be allowed in school.

    The chapter about the Prophet was written haphazardly with wrong information. Prophets words were not combined into the holy book of Quran as the author suggested, it was the words of God which she apparently has trouble expressing and which also should have been the first clue for not writing this book. The real value of religion is missing from the book. It will very interesting to see her references.

    Dianne M. MacMillan should revise this book with a knowledgeable person who can help here re-write. I have nothing against used car salesman by the way. I just wanted to draw a picture to compare.
