- Eid ul-Fitr
- Rome, Italy
Eid ul Fitr, often abbreviated to Eid, is a three-day Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). Eid is an Arabic word meaning “festivity”, while Fiṭr means “conclusion of the fast”; and so the holiday celebrates the conclusion of the thirty days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. Celebrated here at the “Big Mosque” in Rome, the largest in Europe.
