New Delhi:

Eid is being celebrated on Monday after the holy month of Ramadan. Ramzan, the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, is observed as a fasting period by Muslims who abstain from food and water from sunrise to sunset.

Eid-ul-Fitr depends on the sighting of the moon and its celebration varies in different countries. On the day of Eid-ul-Fitr, morning prayers are said and people pay family visits and celebrate with feasts. Muslims greet each other by saying 'Eid Mubarak'

Eid-ul-Fitr, which means 'festival of breaking the fast', marks the end of the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramzan.  Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE have celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr on Sunday to mark the culmination of fasting and holy month of Ramzan.
