Eid-al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, which is a month of fasting and prayer for the Muslims. They fast the whole month as it teaches them the true meaning of perseverance and tolerance while being empathetic towards the poor and the needy.
For the Muslim population of Mauritius and abroad, it is predicted that Eid – al- Fitr will fall on the 15th June 2018. This is obviously only a prediction as it depends on the sight of the new moon. On the first day of Eid, Muslims will gather at the mosques early morning for prayers after which they will spend time with family and friends to celebrate the end of the fasting.
Children are generally gifted on this occasion.
