What you should know about eid- ul-Fitr (Sallah)

Eid is an Arabic word regularly used which implies a "celebration" or "feast” in English Language.

There are two major eids in the Islamic teaching which are commonly referred to as, "Big Sallah" and "Small Sallah" by Some Ghanaians.

The Eid-ul-Fitr also referred to as Small Sallah is the feast by Muslims to mark the end of a full month fasting. It's usually observed on the 1st day of Shawwal which is the month after Ramadan on the Islamic Calendar. 

This doesn't necessarily fall on a similar Gregorian day, as the beginning of any lunar Hijri month fluctuates in light of when the new moon is located by religious authorities. The occasion is known under different names in various dialects and nations all over the planet. The day is additionally called Lesser Eid, or Simply Eid.

Eid-ul-Fitr has an exceptional salat (Islamic supplication) that comprises two rakats (units) generally performed in an open field or huge lobby. It is performed in gathering (jamāʿat) and highlights six extra Takbirs (lifting of the hands to the ears while saying "Allāhu ʾAkbar", signifying "God is the best") in the Hanafi school of Sunni Islam: three toward the beginning of the first rakat and three not long before rukūʿ in the second rakat.

Other Sunni schools usually have 12 Takbirs, similarly split in groups of seven and five. Seven Takbirs in the first rakat and Five in the second rakat.

The Salat is vital as it is necessary and has a great deal of benefit. Islamic researchers show, anybody who fast in the month of Ramadan and ends the fast with this exceptional eid salat has every one of the wrongdoings cleared out totally.

Eid-ul-Fitr was originated by the Islamic prophet Muhammad (SAW).
