Eid ul fitr 2012 / Hari Raya Puasa 2012 / Lebaran 2012

Eid ul fitr is a Muslim holiday which marks the end of Ramadan. Ramadan is a holy month of fasting under Islamic traditions, which requires practitioners to fast from dawn to sunset for an entire month. The word “Eid” is an Arabic word which means festivity or festival and the word “Fitr” is an Arabic word which means “breaking the fast.” Eid ul fitr is essentially a time of festivities celebrating the breaking of a month of fasting, the gifts of God, as well as a time of seeking forgiveness for sins and other wrongdoings.
