In Muslim tradition, Ramadan is a time of heightened commitment to piety and purification through special observances such as fasting, the performance of good deeds, including charitable giving and voluntary service, and through personal sacrifices of material comforts. These observances lead to spiritual fulfilment and a sense of renewal.
Muslims look forward to Eid ul-Fitr as an occasion of peace, happiness, joy and festivity. It is a day for special prayers and the extension of forgiveness and generosity.
