Every year, Rajasthan celebrates Eid al-Fitr with joy, zeal, and excitement. People dressed in fresh attire exchange greetings. Thousands of people attend the main prayer (namaz) in the Idgah. Namaz is also offered in several regions of Rajasthan’s cities and towns. The event is a time of feasting, celebration, and gratitude. The festival preparations begin at the beginning of Ramadan. On the Muslim calendar in India, this is one of the most awaited holidays.
Many people attend religious services and social gatherings with friends and family. Thousands of people gather in Ajmer to celebrate Eid at Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti’s Dargah Sharif, popularly known as Garib Nawaz. Early in the morning, there is frequently a rush to pass through the Jannati Darwaza (portal to paradise) in the Dargah Sharif to seek blessings. The Jannati Darwaza reopens four times a year.
The Festival of Fast-breaking, also known as Eid al-Fitr, marks the conclusion of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. The celebration commemorates the end of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting that Muslims observe throughout the month of Ramadan. Because the day of Eid is determined by the sighting of the moon, there may be slight differences in the exact date observed around the world. The actual dates of Eid Al-Fitr may not be announced until close to the beginning of Ramadan.
It is customary to wear fresh clothes and eat something sweet, such as a date, on the walk to the mosque, as well as utter a short prayer known as a takbeer. Giving money to the poor(known as ‘Zakat al-Fitr,’ the amount to be donated depends on one’s holdings), sending Eid greetings, and feasting with family are also important parts of the Eid celebrations. The most common food in this festial is sweet Sewaiya. For many Muslims, Eid al-Fitr is a time to express thankfulness to Allah for providing them with guidance and strength during Ramadan to help them practise self-control. When the fasting time comes to a conclusion, children are given many gifts, and fairs with street bazaars selling celebratory goods and traditional dishes are held.
The Chief Minister of the state and various top ministers wish people on this pious occasion and extend their greetings.
