Ramzan is the month of silence and sincere remembrance of the Lord. For the over 1.5 billion Muslims across the globe, it is a time marked by prayer, penitence and the wilful sacrifice of one’s personal comforts and pleasures in honour of the divine. Swami has spoken about the strength of prayer in a group as one of the important spiritual practices of Islam. Eid-Ul-Fitr is celebrated at the end of Ramzan, the day after the New Moon is sighted.
‘Eid’ means ‘Joy’ and ‘Fitr’ means ‘charity’. Hence Eid-Ul-Fitr means ‘derive happiness through charity’. During this festival, not only does one remember God, but also the poor and needy. Eid promotes the idea that the individual can be happy only if he contributes to making the entire society happy.
