CAIRO – 13 May 2021: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi wished the Egyptian and the Islamic world a blessed and happy Eid Al Fitr (Festival of Breaking the Fast), expressing his gratitude to all Egyptian people who participated in their homeland’s development and construction
Eid al-Fitr is celebrated by Muslims after fasting in the month of Ramadan as a matter of thanks and gratitude to God. Usually, Eid al-Fitr is a three-day holiday.
The word Eid is an Arabic word that means a festivity, a celebration, recurring happiness, and a feast. In Islam, there are two major Eids, namely Eid al-Fitr (Festival of Breaking the Fast) celebrating the end of Ramadan and Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice) which coincides with the Hajj and commemorates Prophet Abraham’s sacrifice of a sheep in place of his son Ishmael.
