5 Important Sunnah of Eid ul Fitr

What is Eid ul Fitr

Eid ul Fitr is a festival celebrated by Muslims which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. It translates to ‘holiday of breaking the fast‘. Eid day is generally spent thanking Allah (S.W.T) for his help and blessings for completing the month of Ramadan, visiting close family, feasting and giving out gifts.

Through the hadith we know of some Sunnahs which were practised on Eid day by the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) and in this article we will look at 5 of these.

Let’s get started!
